Gender and Diversity Management


KIT and all its institutions in research, teaching, and the science-supporting areas are committed to a culture of diversity and mutual respect, recognition and appreciation, openness, and transparency, and understand the successful and sustainable fulfillment of structural diversity as an immanent goal of their activities.

The idea of diversity is already structurally anchored in KIT's strategy at various points. This is clearly visible, above all, in the umbrella strategy "KIT 2025", in the anchoring in the mission statement, in the auditing as a family-friendly university, and in the inclusion in the best practice club "Family in the University".

In an increasingly complex work, research, and study environment, KIT's diversity management supports employees and students in dealing constructively with the great variety of different lifestyles and social as well as cultural backgrounds and in integrating them profitably into everyday work. In order to fulfill a role model function as a public institution in society, KIT has set itself the goal of creating a barrier- and discrimination-free working, teaching, and learning environment in which appreciative cooperation is possible.

In this context, Diversity Management serves as a central platform for those institutions at KIT that deal with the diversity of employees and students, promotes overarching exchange, and initiates joint projects.
