Gender Management Office

The Gender Management Office provides information and advising services to WZW's female students and scientists 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 WZW and TUM Diversity and Talent Management.
It works in close cooperation with WZW's Gender Equality Officers, TUM.Diversity and TUM.Family 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 TUM’s President Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Wolfgang A. Herrmann and the former Dean of WZW, Prof. Dr. Alfons Gierl.
