The Equal Opportunity Officers are the main contact for all women at the Center and are committed to the concept of equal opportunities in science and research.

They develop equality measures and support their implementation in close cooperation with the Management Board and the Works Council as well as Human Resources, Personnel Development, Communications and Medical Services. These measures in particular include projects to increase the number of women in areas in which women are underrepresented, e. g. in management positions, projects to improve the compatibility of family and career, and projects to increase motivation and competence for equality among managers.

The Equal Opportunities Officer is a member of various internal committees and the Helmholtz Association working group "Women in Research Centers".
