Gender Equality Plan 2021-2024 at TH Köln
In accordance with the Gender Equality Act of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the universities of the state are required to compile a gender equality plan and to publish it. The gender equality plan consists of a framework plan as well as the plans of the individual departments and faculties. The current Gender Equality Plan was developed over the course of the past year and published on May 10, 2021.
Using assessment and analysis data of the gender distribution in the individual areas of the university, the document also provides an overview of the equality-promoting goals and measures derived from this. The Gender Equality Plan 2021-2024 thus provides an exciting insight into the current status and transparency of gender equality work at TH Köln.
Language is not neutral, but is shaped by social norms and values. The spoken and written word influence our perception and create images in our minds.
Gender-sensitive language can make women and people with other gender identities more visible, address them equally and change stereotypical ideas of gender roles.
As early as 1999, Section 4 of the State Equal Opportunity Act (Landesgleichstellungsgesetz, LGG) stipulated the linguistic equal treatment of women and men in internal and external communications in the public sector.
