The first of its kind to address gender inequality in German academia, the gender equality programme at the Arbesignkommission gegen einheiten (Arbeitsgeneinheitnen) at the prestigious German Institute of Economic Research (DIER) has a unique mission: to raise the profile of gender equality in German universities.
The initiative, which is part of the Institute for Gender Equality in Higher Education (IGESGE), is led by Dr. Jan Köhler, a professor of political science at the University of Tübingen, Germany, who has been a vocal advocate for gender equality at universities and is the founding director of the Gendered Equality Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to gender equality.
The programme’s goal is to provide an “exciting new platform for women and men to work together to create a more equal society” and is part, Köhl said, of a larger initiative to help address gender equality on the part of German institutions.
Köhal said that he was drawn to the project, which will be launched by the Institute of Gender Equality at the beginning of the year, because it is the first time that gender equality has been presented as a central topic in the institute’s programme.
He said that the institute, which was founded in 2007, had long focused on gender equality and gender equality education.
“We’re not doing it in a vacuum,” Köhn said.
“At this time, the Geretsgemeinheit nach dem Arbeidungswirtschaft (German society), the Gegenwelt (gender and gender relations), is being completely reshaped. “
The Arbesignedkommissionsgeneine (ARB) is the main organ of the gender revolution in the country,” Kühn added.
“As we approach this new chapter in German society, we must also work hard to address the inequality that exists in our universities.” “
The programme will focus on four main areas: research, scholarship, teaching and administration. “

Kühl said that there are currently more than 300 researchers from across the world who have participated in the initiative, including the German Association for the Advancement of Gender Studies (DAGGES), the International Association for Gender Studies in Education (IAGSME) and the European Network of Gender Scholarships.
The project is a collaboration between the Institute, the DIER, the Arbsgeneinschaften, the Institute and the German Research Institute (DRI), as well as the International Union of Gender and Social Science Societies (IUPSS).
“Gender equality in Germany is very complex, and there is no one answer to it,” Kähn said in a statement, adding that the Arbésignedkomissionsgéine aims to address these issues through a variety of methods.
The institute will launch its first gender equality conference, “Gender and the Future of Gender in Higher Ed.”, which is being hosted by the DIERS, the Kähler Institute and other universities and institutions across the country.
Kähl said the aim is to “give an inspiring platform for German academics to work on gender issues.”
He added that the conference will include a keynote address by the institute and will be led by Köhlen, a researcher with the DIESGE, and will also feature a panel discussion.
The aim of the conference is to raise awareness of gender inequality and the importance of gender equity in the academic community, Kählen said.
The keynote address will be by Kährlich, who is also a founding director at the GEDE, an initiative that aims to “determine the gender and economic status of students in universities” in Germany.
The DIER will also host the conference, as will the Institute’s Women and Gender Policy Committee, which Köhrlich has led since 2013.
The GEDES will also take part in the conference and will present a report on gender equity, Kühlen added.
He also said that other university institutions will also participate in the gender inequality conference.
“It’s a very ambitious idea, but we will be working hard to do it,” said Köhm, who said the conference was the first of many.
The conference will also address “the gender and socialization gap in Germany.”
Köhoffer said that while gender equality was “not just about gender”, the issue of socialization and socialisation in
