Equal Opportunities

Equal Opportunities at the MPIeR

The MPIeR relies on outstanding scientific talent and supports its employees regardless of gender, nationality, religion, disabilities, age, cultural background or sexual identity. Our goal is to create an institutional culture in which staff and guests can use and develop their individual abilities. To this end, the MPIeR uses a variety of measures to foster the work-life balance while simultaneously promoting career advancement.

The MPG Voluntary Commitment, 2017-2020

After the initial voluntary commitment, which ran from 2006-2010, the Max Planck Society has again committed to increasing the proportion of women in higher positions from 2017-2020. Specifically, the goal is to raise the proportion of female scientists and researchers both in W2 and W3 positions and in the E13-E15 salary grades of the Public Service Wage Agreement (TvÖD) by at least one percentage point per year.
