Focus on equal opportunities - Personnel development within the Max Planck Society
The Max Planck Society has publicly committed to increasing the number of women it employs in areas where women are underrepresented, as well as to strengthening its family friendly human resources policies. While equal opportunity initiatives and work-life balance are important for the social stability of our employees, we also believe such measures can help us attract and retain high-caliber employees and also bring a wider range of perspectives to bear on research problems in intelligent systems.
The Equal Opportunities strategy pursued by the Max Planck Society comprises of the following major elements:
IMPORTANT: *** *** *** The Equal Opportunities Officers work confidentially! *** *** ***
They help to promote these measures and at the same time are contact persons for all questions regarding gender equality and compassion. In addition, the equal opportunities officers are involved in all personnel, organizational and social activities relating to equality between women and men, the balance of family and work and protection against sexual harassment in the workplace.
