go diverse aims to dismantle discriminatory access barriers in employment processes. go d!verse offers support on employment processes to all academic and administrative staff on all levels, from the selection of doctoral researchers, post-doc positions and appointment procedures. go d!verse integrates the diversity dimensions race, ableism, class and age into the gender politics.
go diverse is funded by the Female Professors Programme of the Federal Government and the Federal States until October 2024.
During its first funding phase (2017-2019) the project go diverse focused on drawing attention to unconscious discrimination processes in academic employee selection. The team organised lectures, consultations, workshops and developed the “A-Z for a good choice”, to inform decision makers about unconscious and cognitive biases.
Aims of the second funding phase are the establishment of training formats on gender and diversity competences in academic employment processes and the creation of long-term toolboxes specialised for the University of Bremen. The political emphasis lies in the extended understanding of unconscious discrimination. go diverse understands unconscious discrimination not only as cognitive bias in decision making, but also as anchored in the daily organisational practises.
