steering committee

Since the award of the “audit family-friendly university” certificate, a so-called Steering Committee at the KIT has been engaged in implementing a variety of measures to ensure compatibility of work, university studies, and family. The Committee is composed of representatives of a variety of administrative units as well as members of the Presidential Committee and student representatives. Regular meetings are held to keep track of the work on topical subjects. This policy produces results quickly. At the beginning of re-auditing in June 2014, new targets and measures were worked out which must now be put into effect by the KIT. The Steering Committee was re-established specifically in the light of these requirements. Based on these needs, the steering committee was put together, which until 2023 dealt with the needs of the topic of reconciling family, studies and work.

The Gender Equal Opportunities Office and Sarah Wenz, Head of the Gender Equal Opportunities Office and Project Manager of the "audit family-friendly university", thanks everyone involved for their many years of commitment and for the numerous ideas for implementing the measures.
