Office of Gender Affairs and Equal Opportunities

Until actual equality is achieved at all levels, Mainz University’s policy of affirmative action will continue to play an important role in university and human resources development. The main task of the Office of Gender Affairs and Equal Opportunity is to advise the university and its members about appropriate measures that can be implemented in order to promote equal opportunities.


The JGU Office of Gender Affairs and Equal Opportunity provides a wide range of services that cover advice and coaching for career planning, conflict resolution, gender consulting for third-party funded projects, or projects designed for specific target groups such as the Program for Young Female Academics (ProWeWin).

The Office of Gender Affairs and Equal Opportunity works closely with the Gender Equality Representative of the University Senate.
