The University of Oldenburg is committed to equal opportunities and actively supports women in the worlds of academia and education, technology and administration. In my role as the Central Equal Opportunities Officer, I work closely with the Decentralised Equal Opportunity Officers and the team at the Equal Opportunities Office to promote equal opportunity and the advancement of women, as well as to address issues relating to the fair treatment of women in various situations at our university. If there is anything you would like to talk about, or if you have a concern, please feel free to contact us.
