The UdK Berlin has committed itself to creating equal opportunities for all its members, regardless of gender, age, skin colour, appearance, social and cultural background, sexual identity, religious affiliation, nationality, psychological and physical constitution. This goal has not yet been achieved.
Because of this, on this page there is the possibility to report experiences of discrimination anonymously. The reports will show us what kind of discrimination occurs at the UdK Berlin, including for example disadvantaging, stereotyping, degrading or excluding. In an upcoming diversity policy, we are developing measures to make the UdK Berlin an equitable, diverse and inclusive place that engages with differences considerately and respectfully. Your experience reports will help us to identify the problem areas and pursuit the necessary changes.
Since all experiences shared here are made anonymously, we are unfortunately unable to respond to them personally. However, we are working on improving the support services at the UdK Berlin, including making them more diverse. Individual counselling is currently provided by the Women’s Representative (Frauenbeauftragte) and the members of the Confidence Council (Vertrauensrat), which offer protection in cases of (sexualized) discrimination and violence; as well as the AStA Department for Intercultural and Anti-Discrimination and the Students’ Initiative I.D.A. These instances can be contacted at any time and ensure confidentiality. Beyond these, there are other contact points within and outside the UdK.
