Organization decentralized equality

According to the Ruhr University's university development plan, "equality" is about "equal opportunities between women and men". And for RUB this is a central criterion of university development and is designed as a cross-sectional task. The work of the RUB's central Equal Opportunities Officer is supported by decentralized Equal Opportunities Officers in each of the faculties. Elected by the Faculty Council, they are the official representatives of female professors, academic staff, technical and administrative staff, and all female students.

An overview of the decentralized equal opportunity officers of all RUB faculties can be found at

Active networking

As decentralized equal opportunity officers of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at RUB, we see ourselves primarily as networkers who bring women in ID together and consciously support them. In doing so, we are concerned with the compatibility of family and career, the targeted professional promotion of each individual and the intensive exchange among each other.

You can also participate personally in our equal opportunities work: Just come to the next meeting of the "Council of 12". Initiated by all women in ID, this - unofficial - institution is our common meeting place. Discuss with us and bring in your opinion: You are cordially invited!

For parents


The Eltern Netzwerk RUB is a cross-status group of RUB employees with care responsibilities. The general goal of the network is to promote the exchange between parents and RUB, to offer new parents a contact point in the future, and to work together for a better compatibility of science and family at Ruhr-Uni.


RUB is committed to ensuring that work/academics/studies are compatible with family responsibilities. The Family Friendly University staff unit promotes the strategic development of a family-friendly university culture in science and administration.

Here you can find all offers of the staff unit:
