In October 2022, GEOMAR's new Gender Equality Plan was published by the Directorate. In this plan, 21 aims are defined for the period from 2022 to 2026 in order to further advance gender equality at GEOMAR. In addition, the Gender Equality Commission was established as a committee to monitor the implementation of the aims and to support the responsible persons.
Structure of the Commission
The commission meets twice a year (spring and fall). Once a year, the commission receives a short report based on the annual data collection as of 31.12. At mid-term and at the end of the GEnder Equality Plan, a comprehensive report is prepared and made available to the employees of GEOMAR. The results and recommendations of the Gender Equality Commission are presented to the Extended Directorate, the Staff Council, and the heads of the departments of the administration (LAS round).
Tasks of the Gender Equality Commission
Composition of the Commission
The commission can be supplemented by other stakeholders, e.g. from the Digital Council, Communications and Media or the team assistant´s network (TAN).
