Gender Equality at MAKI

To take into account the special situation of a collaborative research alliance at TU Darmstadt, MAKI is highly committed to gender equality between all human beings in science.

Professor Andy Schürr is the Gender Equality Officer at MAKI. The gender equality action plan of MAKI has been honoured with the Franziska-Braun award in 2016. Our gender equality targets are:

  • to increase the number of female scientists and researchers in leading roles
  • to attract more women in all phases of their scientific career in the MAKI field of research
  • to make it easier for all employees to combine family and work

With a transparent gender equality action plan for all qualification levels, MAKI builds on established instruments to make female role models more visible, to network, train, coach and support as necessary while creating the necessary awareness and structures to do so. We collaborate intensively with the Gender Equality Office of TU Darmstadt.
