Personnel Development

The University of Bremen places particular emphasis on personnel policy and development, including the promotion of young academics, in its strategic goals and measures for the diversity processes for 2018–2020. We are convinced that an authentic and comprehensive orientation of the institution towards diversity sensitivity can only be supported and implemented through the appropriate attitudes, skills, and actions of employees in all status groups.


Diversity-Oriented Selection Procedures

Our goal is to design selection procedures at all levels to be gender- and diversity-oriented. We critically scrutinize our procedures and guidelines and develop them further. The gender and diversity competence of the future professors at the University of Bremen also plays an increasingly relevant role in the accompanying assessment center within the framework of the appointments procedure.

If you are interested in the development process, please contact us:

Dr. Petra Schierholz, Head of Department 1
