Do you feel disadvantaged at university because of your gender and would you like to talk about your experience to exchange views and find out about further steps?

The conversation will remain confidential.

Upon request, the Gender Equality Officer will support and advise you on the complaint channels in cases of discrimination at Heilbronn University. You can find further details about the complaint channels on the official page of the anti-discrimination complaints body.
