Organisation and Activities

The work of the Conference is based on its statutes and its ballot rules and regulations.

What we do

The foremost aims of the Conference are to reduce discrimination against women in academia and to avoid such discrimination in the future. Women are actively supported and encouraged to overcome existing obstacles and to aim at a career in science, research or business in spite of the lack of female role models.

The Conference office organises the cooperation of equal opportunities officers at academic institutions in Baden-Württemberg. On the state level, it is the central contact point for the equal opportunities officers, students and researchers of these institutions. The Conference has been very efficient in communicating with policy makers, ministries, and other associations. 

The commitment of the Conference is evident in its decisions and resolutions, as well as in the promotional programmes it runs and has initiated, and its other activities.
