Within CEPLAS, international scientists from all around the world work together, independent of their origin or ethnic affiliation. CEPLAS makes an effort to create the same conditions and opportunities for all members, irrespective of their gender, life situation, cultural or social background or age. We are committed to tolerance and appreciation and address decisively unequal treatment of any kind.
This is why we have established various measures to effectively ensure equality and diversity within our research community. Our three main areas of activity are:
CEPLAS works closely with the equal opportunity, diversity officers and family support offices of the participating universities (HHU, UoC) and actively participates in the networks of equal opportunity professionals of “GenderConsulting” and "Equal Opportunity in DFG-Research consortia”. This enables collaboration with experts from various nationwide institutions and exchange of best practices.
