Diversity

The Faculty of Business and Economics considers the diversity of its members to be a special potential. Our students and employees are characterized by diversity in age, gender, gender identity, social origin, sexual orientation, religion, world view, physical and mental abilities, ethnic origin and nationality. We want to promote and leverage this diversity of personalities. 

Equal opportunities, appreciation and respect for all faculty members are among the core points of our common value orientation and form the action-guiding basis for the design of the study and working conditions at our faculty.

Peer mentoring „Einblick!" for female students

The peer mentoring program "Einblick!" offers female graduates and students in the final phase the opportunity to exchange ideas with other female students about the prospect of a PhD. A doctoral student accompanies the participants as a mentor, reports from her own experience, provides impulses for reflection and decision-making with regard to the postgraduate degree and informs about the promotion of young scientists.

The six-month program includes, among other things, participation in the university's qualification programs, expert discussions with female PhDs from science and industry, and regular group meetings with a mentor.

Collegial coaching for female scientists in the post-doc phase

You are one of the few female post-doctoral researchers in your field and are looking for interdisciplinary exchange at eye level without competition? Are you aiming for a responsible position or have you already taken one, e.g. the leadership of a working group? You are in the first two years after your PhD and would like to think purposefully about the next steps of your professional development? You would like to work on your goals with a clear structure and at fixed dates in a group?
Then Collegial Coaching is the right thing for you!

Within the framework of Collegial Coaching you have time and space to define your specific goals and to work on these goals in exchange with the other group members, to learn new ways and to celebrate successes. In addition to this personal goal development, you will train your consulting and communication skills in interaction with each other, which you can also use outside the group. The goal is to coach each other in a peer process and to inspire each other in the concrete implementation of goals.

If you are interested, please register with Dr. Julia Steinhausen (julia.steinhausen(at)upb(dot)de) with the keyword "Kollegiales Coaching". A short conversation/phone call will follow for information and clarification of questions.
