Gender Management Office

The Gender Management Office provides information and advising services to female students and scientists of the TUM School of Life Sciences regarding

  • opportunities for training and development, as well as funding, in all academic fields and at various stages of their academic career
  • questions of work-life balance and managing study, career and family
  • the awareness of gender issues in research and teaching
  • gender specific issues and conflict situations.

The Gender Management Office serves as an interface between the TUM School of Life Sciences and TUM Diversity and Talent Management.
It works in close cooperation with Gender Equality Officers of the TUM School of Life Sciences, TUM Equal Opportunity and TUM Kids, Family and Elder Care Center to foster efficient and effective dialogue among individual institutional units.
The Gender Management Office is one of several measures instigated within the scope of equal opportunity and diversity objectives agreed upon by the former TUM’s President Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Wolfgang A. Herrmann and the former Dean of WZW, Prof. Dr. Alfons Gierl.
