Equal opportunities / women’s representative
The task of the women's representative is to promote the implementation of the Bremen State Equal Opportunities Act (LGG) in the Leibniz-IWT and to prevent discrimination based on gender. In addition, the Women's Representative supports the management in implementing the Leibniz equality standards to which Leibniz-IWT has committed itself by becoming a member of the Leibniz Association at the beginning of 2018. Leibniz-IWT strives to achieve a high proportion of women among its employees and is endeavouring to increase this proportion in areas where women are underrepresented. In addition, Leibniz-IWT promotes the compatibility of work and family through flexible working hours and part-time employment and has been certified for this with the seal "AWARDED FAMILY FRIENDLY" since 2016.
