Campus campaign "Heidelberg University - show respect, promote diversity, work together"
Campus campaign at Heidelberg University
In spring 2021, the campus campaign: “show respect, promote diversity, work together” is going to start at Heidelberg University with a public news release, its own website, and an ideas competition for students. Furthermore, scientists will present and discuss the topics in a digital kick-off event in January. A university-wide survey in the same month, as like as a lecture on cyber-bullying in February and a coaching for executives in May pay attention to the topic. In summer 2021 the campaign concludes with an online-tutorial. More information can be found on the central campaign page.
On International Women's Day (March 8, 2021) we show the documentary film "Picture a Scientist". In the film, a biologist, a chemist and a geologist answer the questions "Who actually does science?" "And why is it still the "male scientist" in our minds?" The audience follow experiences and struggles within their scientific carreer. They have to face discrimination and fight for recognition, respect and equal rights on a daily basis.
The film will be followed by a discussion with Dr. Annika Guse (life sciences, COS), Dr. Christiane Opitz (neurosciences, DKFZ) and the moderator Professor Dr. Christiane Schwieren (economics, Equal Opportunities Commissioner of the University).
Date: Monday, Match 8th, 7.00-8.30pm film, 8.30-9.30pm discussion

All students at Heidelberg University may participate in the idea contest. We are looking for creative ideas to make the contest's theme "Show Respect, Promote Diversity, Work Together at Heidelberg University" accessible to all students. Your ideas should help to signal what respectful and fair conduct means to us at Heidelberg University and should provide information on who to turn to in case of harassment, bullying, stalking and discrimination.
