Gender Equality

Equality between women and men is a key concern for us. In particular, we have set ourselves the goal of continuously and rapidly increasing the proportion of women in management positions. 

Male and female employees with family obligations are equally supported by various offers that are designed to enable them to balance work and family life
As a Leibniz Institute, we are committed to the equality goals of the Leibniz Association and are supported in our efforts by the Association through various instruments.

In November 2008, the Leibniz Association was the first non-university research institution to accept the "Research-Oriented Equality Standards" issued by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as a voluntary commitment. The structural and personnel norms defined here contribute to gender equality in a consistent, transparent, competitive, future-oriented and competent manner. 

ATB's gender equality concept describes goals and measures for the implementation of the research-oriented gender equality standards.
