HHU DIVERSITY-Week 17.-23. Mai


"Diversity" at Heinrich-Heine-University stands for a variety of attitudes, perspectives and lifestyles. This year, Diversity Day is being expanded into an entire - virtual - week of action. 14 HHU institutions present themselves and their activities as part of the Diversity week.

What is the concret value of gender equality and diverstiy in research and teaching?

  • The Bio120 (Botany) short lecture from WS 2020/21 for Bachelor Biology students contains contributions to draw attention to this topic. It is now available as a video series "Bio120 Biologie Botanik_Interessantes in Kürze" in the media library for the Bio120 Botany lecture >> Videos by Prof. Dr. Petra Bauer on ILIAS.
  • The seminar "Women Pioneers in Plant Biology" in the summer semester 2020 was not only about fascinating findings and methodological approaches from research of the past and present, but also about the lives of women scientists in the course of time.

"Soapbox Science is a public platform where women present their research in an easy-to-understand way. Without technical equipment, at eye level with the audience, they convey the fascination of their work. In this way, they want to reach people who otherwise have little to do with science and who may have a false image of science." (Arne Claussen, HHU Wissenschaftskommunikation)

Due to corona, the Soapbox Event 2020 in Düsseldorf could only take place virtually. Prof. Dr. Bauer was one of the four HHU participants at this event last year. A video of the German session of the event can be found on YouTube.



We are pleased to congratulate Dr. Daniela Lichtblau and Dr. Anna Sergeeva on passing their doctorate and wish them all the best for the future!
