Decentralised equal opportunities representative

The decentralised equal opportunities representative of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences (School VI) advises science, technology and administration staff regarding equal opportunities, and designs and implements measures to advance equal opportunities within the School. The representative is committed to various issues, such as the promotion of female researchers and junior female researchers, consolidating active recruitment in the context of appointment procedures, implementing measures to ensure equal opportunities within the School, and contributing to an optimal work-life balance.

The School's equal opportunities representative should be informed and involved promptly and in advance with regard to all matters concerning equal opportunities, i.e. structural and personnel decisions (publication of vacancies, selection and recruitment of staff including changes to classification or the increasing of employment contracts, appointments committees, personnel development concepts, committee meetings, etc.). The earlier the School’s equal opportunities representatives participate and are involved, the more efficiently they can advise those seeking advice, deal with specific topics and give guidance regarding procedures, including selection procedures.

Formal co-determination in HR procedures on the part of the central and decentralised equal opportunities representatives takes place by means of ‘accompanying forms for the implementation of measures to promote equal opportunities’, which must be completed for all HR procedures.
When fully completed, the commission chairs or recruiters can send the forms to the School’s equal opportunities representative in digital form only, together with any other documents that are required ().
The forms will then be processed by the School’s equal opportunities representative and forwarded digitally to the central equal opportunities body. To avoid bottlenecks prior to recruitment, the documents for the equal opportunities representative should be sent at the same time as the documents for the personnel department.

The following form should be used for this:
