Gender Equality Office of MPICI
The Institute is constantly striving to create optimal working conditions and pave the way for scientific excellence. An important part of this process is to create a working environment where equality and protection against discrimination are ensured. Diversity is a valuable resource that contributes to even greater achievements in all fields of science.
Gender Equality Officers are called on to establish and ensure a working framework in which there is no room for discrimination of any kind. They advise, monitor and develop the concept of equality in the functioning of the Institute in such a way that all those who wish to start or develop their academic career will find optimal conditions to do so.
