 Campus campaign at Heidelberg University: "Heidelberg University - living respect, promoting diversity, shaping togetherness"

As part of the Baden-Württemberg-wide campaign "zieh einen Schlussstrich" (draw a line under it), Heidelberg University is sending a clear signal for respectful and cooperative interaction and against sexual harassment, bullying, stalking and discrimination.

In August, the resolution was passed at the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts and signed by representatives of all university departments and the Minister of Science, Theresia Bauer.

In spring 2021, the campus campaign "Heidelberg University - Living Respect, Promoting Diversity, Shaping Cooperation" will be launched with its own website and an ideas competition for students. In addition, academics will speak and discuss the campaign's topics at a digitally accessible launch event in February. A university-wide survey, a lecture on cyberbullying and a leadership training in May are also dedicated to the topic. In summer 2021, the campaign will end with the publication of an online tutorial. You can find the online tutorial here.

The entire campaign programme can be found here.

Past Events:

University-wide survey on discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying and stalking

The university-wide survey, which is aimed at all students and employees of Heidelberg University, has been carried out. Experiences of (sexual) harassment, bullying, stalking and discrimination are the central topics of the survey. The survey aims to identify definitions and measures as well as information from Heidelberg University on the topic and to record any existing areas of fear. The report on the evaluation of the survey can be found here.

Documentary "PICTURE A SCIENTIST - Women of science

On International Women's Day, 8 March 2021, we will show you (digitally) the documentary film "PICTURE A SCIENTIST - Women of Science". In the film, a biologist, a chemist and a geologist tackle the questions "Who actually does science?" "And why is it still "the scientist" in our minds?" and take the audience on a journey through the experiences of their academic careers.  In the process, they are exposed to discrimination from the very beginning and they have to fight a constant battle for recognition, respect and equality.

The film will be followed by a discussion. Dr. Annika Guse (Biosciences, COS), Dr. Christiane Opitz (Neurosciences, DKFZ) and Professor Christiane Schwieren (Economics, Equal Opportunities Officer of the University) will participate as moderators.

Lecture on Professional Handling of Harassment, Bullying & Stalking

Another lecture as part of the campus campaign deals with the topic of "Dealing professionally with harassment, bullying & stalking" and will take place as a webinar at HeiConf. It will explain which preventive measures already exist at the university, how (especially supervisors) should behave in concrete cases and which contact points and possibilities for action exist. In addition to the presentations by Charlotte von Knobelsdorff and Agnes Speck from the Equal Opportunities Office of Heidelberg University, the victim protection coordinator of Heidelberg Police Tanja Kramper will report on her practical experiences. The event is primarily aimed at people with staff or teaching responsibilities as well as persons of trust.
