Equal Opportunity & Diversity

EXC 2120 IntCDC


We strive to build a diverse IntCDC community and strongly support equal opportunity across gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability, social background, age and career stage through orchestrated university-wide and Cluster-specific measures.

The Cluster-specific equal opportunity measures are multifaceted and aim to complement those of the university. The Cluster’s dedicated D&I Management operates on three levels:

  • nurturing an inclusive and diverse IntCDC research culture
  • building an inclusive and diverse IntCDC research community
  • fostering an inclusive and diverse research environment
