Diversity and Gender Equality
The partners will systematically develop and implement a strategy for the joint advancement of diversity and diversity studies. To this end, the Diversity and Gender Equality Network (DiGENet) will bundle existing standards and formulate new ones that will catalyze a cultural change toward a diverse and gender-sensitive research environment in the long term. In addition, by widening access to their most successful and desirable joint program to support female scholars on the way to a professorship, ProFiL, the partners will continue their joint efforts to strengthen gender equality. The long-term effects of this CCT will be to extend the leading position of the Berlin universities in gender equality to the field of diversity and to establish sustainable diversity-related standards within the Alliance that are internationally competitive.
The DiGENet has launched the “Audre Lorde-BUA-Guest Professorship for Intersectional Diversity Studies” in the summer semester of 2021. The guest professorship is intended to diversely shape Berlin as a research hub on par with the reality of urban society.
