To promote diversity and gender equality is one of the cross-cutting themes of the Berlin University Alliance. The Diversity and Gender Equality Network (DiGENet) plays a significant role in implementing this goal. The research and competence network offers interested researchers from Berlin a platform for intensive and interdisciplinary knowledge exchange.

At DiGENet's establishment in 2020, Berlin led the nation with a 32% share of full-time professorships held by women. The network is associated with the hope of expanding this top-level position even further and reflecting the diversity of the city in the Berlin research environment.

The network has now expanded to more than 200 experts within the Berlin University Alliance. Its members meet regularly and discuss varied topics in different working groups.
