Gender Controlling

Background and aims of the project

As part of the Women Professors Programme III, a development and Evaluation project with the focus on "gender controlling" established. With support the reporting system, statistical evaluations and other appropriate measures, the project should shed light on university gender equality work and ensure progress in the fulfilment of the MLU's equality mandate.
The development goal of the project is to establish a system for collecting gender-related data in the context of gender-sensitive university planning. Equality and equal opportunities for all genders are to be realized in this context through the development of appropriate promotional measures. In addition, it is important to anchor equality as a permanent cross-cutting task within the university and to integrate equality goals into the strategy, structures and to integrate ongoing planning and control processes.

Gender Monitor 2021

As part of the gender controlling project, a gender monitor was developed which provides a status quo of the gender distribution in the committees, commissions and management levels as well as at the career and qualification levels at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg in the academic and non-academic areas.

The monitor provides the necessary compilation of processed gender-specific data to initiate or enable further analyses in the context of gender equality work. The report is to be understood as a controlling instrument and can be used by various stakeholders as a basis for information and decision-making. Furthermore, the Gender Monitor is an important building block for the university's Gender Equality Plan and the associated reporting obligations.

The monitor is divided into two parts: the first provides the status quo at university level, the second part relates to the individual faculties (including Medicine). Here you can find the monitor in the long and short version.
