What is the man­date of the Equal Op­por­tun­it­ies Of­ficer?

The Bavarian Equal Opportunities Act (BayGlG) of 24.5.1996 forms the basis for the appointment of the Equal Opportunities Officer and his or her area of responsibility.

The following objectives are formulated in this law:

Goal 1
Increasing the proportion of women in areas where women are employed in significantly smaller numbers than men in order to achieve a balanced employment relationship.

Goal 2
Ensuring equal opportunities for women and men.

Goal 3
Working towards a better reconciliation of family and professional life for women and men.

Goal 4
Working towards the equal participation of women and men in governing bodies.

The Equal Opportunities Officer promotes and monitors the enforcement of this law and supports its implementation. The Equal Opportunities Act applies within the university and with it the responsibility of the Equal Opportunities Officer for administrative staff. The Equal Opportunities Officer of HNU is Christoph Giebeler.
