FAU is offering a free online tutorial on the topic of Gender-sensitive appointment procedures and recruitment. This one hour tutorial aims to raise awareness of (unconscious) gender biases and how they affect staffing decisions and is accessible for Non-FAU-members as well.

The tutorial is an online course on the StudOn platform. It lasts approximately one hour and it is aimed at raising awareness of (unconscious) gender biases and how they affect staffing decisions. Participants gain an overview of various aspects of gender-sensitive appointment procedures and we hope the tutorial will encourage you to take an in-depth look at gender-sensitive appointment procedures and recruitment. The tutorial is aimed at continuing to make recruitment procedures at FAU more professional, transparent and gender sensitive.

The course is predominantly aimed at members of appointment committees and managers at FAU. It can, however, also be accessed by anyone interested in the topic, whether they are members of FAU or not.

More information on the course in German and English is available on the website of the Office of Equality and Diversity.
