We advise interested individuals as well as institutions such as student unions, student bodies, departments, institutes, associated institutes, central academic institutions, university leadership, professorships and chairs, central university administrations, academic senates, and HR committees.

We will be happy to put on workshops to help you expand your gender and diversity competences, and we can create sensitivity training that is tailored to your specific needs.

In order to make sure you can successfully implement your own particular equality concerns and activities, we are happy to provide you with concrete action-oriented and solution-oriented advising.
