Measures taken by the faculties and centres
The faculties and centres each set their own goals at the University of Bern and take measures to promote equal opportunities in their respective structures and cultures. For the new phase 2021-24, they have been commissioned by the Executive Board of the University of Bern to focus on further topics such as physical and mental impairments, age, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, social origin or gender identity, in addition to their previous efforts to promote gender equality.
All eight faculties and five centres (AEC, ARTORG, CDE, CSH, WTI) carried out a site assessment in 2020 and adopted new Equal Opportunities Schemes for the years 2021-24. Centres that do not have their own gender equality plan usually participate in a faculty equality plan.
