Supporting diversity

We promote the importance of equal opportunities in the university's development. This means that we work to design university structures and processes that reflect the diverse realities of our members' lives.

HAW Hamburg's diversity vision

Educational opportunities are distributed unequally in our society. We want to change this. At HAW Hamburg, promoting educational equality is one of our central aims.

Our students and staff are diverse, as are their skills. We want to recognise their talents and support them in the process of developing their skills.

Societal problems and conflicts are complex. Simplistic answers frequently lead to further tensions. We thus aim to develop academically sound solutions to societal problems.

This is how we work:

Our projects

'Respecting one another' brochure series

What do I do if I don't know someone's preferred pronoun? What does POC mean? And why isn't it always okay to ask where a person comes from? Our brochure series answers these and other questions in a clear and to-the-point way. More

 

Diversity tip of the month

On the first Tuesday of each month, we send our 'Diversity tip of the month' via email to all HAW Hamburg employees and students.

The brief, easy-to-understand tips cover topics related to anti-discrimination and equal opportunity. More
