Information for employees

The following list provides a number of support services for all PLUS employees.


  • Working Group on Equal Opportunities

    The Working Group on Equal Opportunities (Arbeitskreis für Gleichbehandlungsfragen – AKG) supports the PLUS in all measures taken to promote equal opportunities and prevent discrimination.

    The AKG is represented in all appointment and habilitation committees as well as faculty and department councils and attends all job interviews with prospective employees.

    The AKG offers advice and guidance for all members of the PLUS who experience or witness discrimination.

    If you suspect that you are being discriminated against because of your gender, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation, the AKG can offer help and advice.

    You can email us, call us, or come to a consultation during office opening hours. During our first meeting (online, over the phone or in person), we will listen to your explanation of the situation, make a note of all the facts and outline further options. Together we will work out strategies on how to proceed and discuss possible further steps.

    Any steps taken will be discussed with you first. No measures will be taken without your consent.

    All consultations are strictly confidential and can be held anonymously.
