Projects for Female Pupils
Projects for Female University and Doctoral Students
In 2013, the Equality Commission of the TU Chemnitz praised exceptional masters and diploma thesis by female Junior Scientists from the natural and technical science faculties for the first time. This award aims to create an incentive for female graduates to orientate their careers towards the field of science.
The Marie-Pleißner-Award is given to exceptional masters and diploma thesis by female junior scientists of the Behavioural and Social Science faculty, the Economics and Business Administration faculty as well as the faculty of Humanities. This award aims to create an incentive for female graduates to orientate their careers towards the field of science.
The mentoring programme supports highly motivated female junior scientists to specifically prepare them from their careers in executive positions in science to a professorship. “WoMentYou_Doc” is only offered to female junior scientists of all faculties as well as Central Institution at the TU Chemnitz during the doctoral phase, that want to remain in the scientific system and aim to reach an executive position in science or research.
Projects for Female Scientists
Gender x Computer Science. Supporting networking and dialogue in research
Rapid developments in the IT-branch, as well as their multiple effects on the world we humans live in, demands an ever more growing occupation with user appropriate elements of presentation. The Centre for Equal Opportunities in Science and Research at the TU Chemnitz has picked up this topic and developed a project that desensitises computer scientists towards gender and diversity and that supports the integration of gender aspects in the scientific research process. This project also included conscious taking up and reflection of this topic in own projects.
The cooperation partners were TU Bergakademie Freiberg, the TU Ilmenau and the OVGU Magdeburg. The project stretched till May 2018. The goals were to evoke an intense dialogue, the sensitisation of research as well as to improve the research networking between universities and employees and to demonstrate potential and chances of integrating gender aspects into the computer science research.
To be able to achieve the set goals, measures were installed which also included five thematically fitting workshops held on the first and last day of a conference. The participants of these workshops were given selected input to projects and were further educated methodically and subject specifically.
