Topics surrounding gender equality are relevant in a variety of contexts in higher education. They play a role in everyday academic life not only in the introduction of concrete measures for equal opportunities, but also in the selection of applicants or in hiring procedures. A solid basic knowledge of the topic is necessary for a proper handling of equal opportunity issues. This online seminar provides a comprehensive overview of legal considerations that are of central importance for the implementation of gender equality measures in academia.
