Who we are and what we want to achieve:
Science benefits from the contributions and different perspectives of many. This also applies to immunology. Therefore, it is a goal of the DGfI to see, include and promote all talents. This means that women and men should have equal opportunities for their careers in science, whether they have families or not. Many know from their own experience that there is still work to be done, but statistics and studies on the subject also clearly show it.
The Commission for Gender Equality and Career Support brings together DGfI researchers who are committed to this issue. We have a particular focus on those who are in the challenging phase after their doctorate up to their first professorship. There is a great need for concrete knowledge and moral support.
