Gender equality, inclusion and family
Gender Equality and Inclusion
The AIP promotes gender equality and provides an attractive work environment, inviting all staff members to engage.
Confronted with a surplus of men, as is common for engineering and natural sciences, the institute deliberately supports the professional education and career of women.
As a Leibniz institute, the AIP is committed to the Leibniz Equality Standards (in German).
The contact person for gender issues is Katrin Böhrs.
The inclusion commissioner of the AIP is Melanie Widra.
Compatibility of family and career
To ensure the balance of career and family, the AIP offers various services. This includes the support and further development of:
- Part-time work
- Flexible working hours
- Mobile office for parents & children
- Recreation room for nursing mothers
- Support of childcare (German website!)
