Gender & Equal oportunities
π3 aims at providing an open minded, scientifically stimulating environment for its diverse group of doctoral students regardless of their ethnicity, nationality, origin, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age or dis-/ability. This is supported by our Soft Skills programme, which focuses on the topics of equal opportunity and awareness.
Gender inequality is a prevailing reality in science and research. One of our main educational goals is to raise gender awareness on all levels of π3. Role models do play in important role in developing an adequate attitude towards gender issues, hence, a particular emphasis is on including a special programme for improving gender awareness of the involved PIs. As an exmple, in February 2020 we held the course "Gender sensitive leadership" for PIs.
The PhD student of the 2nd Cohort of th RTG Eva Dierkers (eva.dierkesprotect me ?!uni-bremenprotect me ?!.de) is the contact person for any question regarding women's issues.
Eva Dierkes is a member of the Decentralised Women's Representative Collective of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Bremen. As a collective it consists of several decentralised women's representatives and represents the status groups of female professors, female academic staff and female students in an equal manner. The collective deals with all topics that directly or indirectly affect women in the department. The Women's Representative Collective represents the interests of women in all faculty committees and in all personnel and organisational decisions, in particular in appointment and recruitment procedures.
π3 aims at ensuring equal opportunities for all people involved in it; no matter whether they are PhD or Postdoctoral fellows, members of faculty or staff, or associate members to our program. It commits to the Anti-discrimination guidelines of the University of Bremen and we work together with the Referat 04 - Chancengleichheit of the University of Bremen .
Furthermore, for every cohort of doctoral students the π3 steering committee selects a contact person for all questions related to Gender & Equal Opportunities. Dr. Iwona Piotrowska-Kurczewski is our Gender & Equal opportunities representative for the present 2nd cohort of PhD students. This representative provides information on equal opportunity measures and are acting non-discrimination with respect to ethnicity, language, religion, dis-/ability, age, sexual orientation, gender and family responsibilities.
