The Friedrich Schiller University Jena is committed to the idea of Gender Mainstreaming and Diversity Mainstreaming. It pursues the goal of ensuring that all people have access to and can successfully participate in university education and science in a way that is appropriate to their opportunities and capacities. This includes measures to increase equal opportunities and equality between women and men, but also to ensure freedom from discrimination and equal rights for people with diverse backgrounds and situations. These goals are implemented by the Graduate Academy for the doctorate and postdoc phase.
