The Department for Equality and Diversity assists HHN in accomplishing its mission to create equal opportunities and promote diversity.

Concept Development

We formulate strategies to foster equal opportunities, facilitate participation, and prevent discrimination.

What does diversity mean?

The aim of Diversity Management at HHN is to create an equitable, inclusive, and discrimination-free university where diversity is celebrated, and everyone can fully realize their potential. 

Under the banner of diversity, HHN encompasses the following thematic areas: 

  • Gender equality
  • Anti-racism
  • Religious diversity
  • Inclusion
  • Sexual and gender diversity
  • Ageism
  • Family-friendliness
  • Educational equity

We work closely with the Gender Equality Officer, the Equal Opportunities Officer, the representatives against discrimination and bullying as well as the representative body for severely disabled people. Our work is supported by the Senate Commission on Equality and Diversity and the Family Working Group.
