Equal opportunity at the DKFZ

Since 1999 Equal Opportunity has been strongly advocated at the DKFZ. Measures to implement equal opportunities have therefore been long established.

What started in 2004 under the direction of the former Equal Opportunity Representative Dr. Barbara Bertram has been dutifully continued and developed by Dr. Karin Greulich-Bode and since April 2017 by Dr. Lorenza A. D'Alessandro. 

Besides the public-oriented events the Equal Opportunity Representative is also responsible for checking on recruitment procedures as well as advising female and male employees. If you should feel the need for a personal talk with the Equal Opportunity Representative, you can contact her per email or telephone.
