The Perception, Consideration and Reflection of Gender
Gender sensitivity refers to the systematic perception, consideration and reflection of the various situations and circumstances faced by the different genders. It also aims to raise awareness of gender-specific stereotypical role models and the resulting distorted perception and evaluation patterns of men and women, which people are often oblivious to. Our objective is to raise awareness of these aspects, to build gender skills and to give people the tools they need to act in keeping with gender equality. Gender sensitivity and gender competence have a role to play in all areas of action and spheres of activity in the context of higher eduction, such as university communication, in daily life, in recruitment or in research and teaching. FAU has set itself the goal of establishing measures aimed at raising gender awareness at all levels of the university and to increase gender skills within the institution.
