International womens day 2021 - together for gender equality in academia


The Covid 19 pandemic has brought it to light: Equality (not only) in the science system is far from being a matter of course. With its projects, programs and measures, IGaD contributes to a sustainable change in university structures and cultures - together with its cooperation partners inside and outside Aachen.


On the occasion of International Women's Day 2021, we would like to draw your attention to the theater project "#Verbündete" (Allies) by the ensemble "Das Theaterbüro" together with the Equal Opportunities Offices of the cities of Aachen and Würselen and the German Trade Union Federation (DGB), Region NRW-SouthWest. The project addresses current grievances and aims to show that solidarity with and among women is important even in times of pandemic.

The resulting film "#Verbündete" (in German) celebrates its premiere today, Monday, March 8, at 6 p.m. on the Youtube channel "Das Theaterbüro".
