Equal opportunities

Equal opportunities

The Max Planck Society is dedicated to putting into action the Equal Opportunities commandment, which is described in the German Federal Law. In order to do so, the Society has set internal goals to foster gender equality in terms of the promotion of women. To achieve a balanced employment of women and men, the MPS strives for a permanent implementation of the family-conscious personnel policy

The Equal Opportunities Commissioner at the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics helps with the implementation of these goals and is also contact person for all questions regarding gender equality and gender sensibility.

The local Equal Opportunities Commissioner contributes to all personnel, organisational and social measures that concern gender equality of women and men, compatibility of family and work and protection against sexual harrassment and mobbing at the workplace.
