Staff Unit Diversity & Equal Opportunities

The Technical University of Munich cultivates a culture of appreciation, openness and diversity. Independent of gender, nationality, religion, worldview, physical ability, age or sexual orientation TUM actively promotes the equality of all members of our university.

It is the diversity of our scientists, students and staff that makes TUM an innovative and dynamic university. It therefore creates working and study conditions in which everyone can develop their individual abilities. The result: studying and working in lively teams, exchanging fruitful debates and thriving in an environment of outstanding research, innovation and creativity.

The Staff Unit Diversity & Equal Opportunities is a central unit which develops, shapes and supports TUM's gender & diverisity strategy. We work closely with the Gender Equality Office, Gender Equality Officers in our Schools / Faculties, Vice Deans for Talent Management and Diversity and the respective Diversity Offices of the Schools / Faculties. The Staff Unit reports to Prof. Dr. Claudia Peus, Senior Vice President for Talentmanagement & Diversity.
