Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusiveness

The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics strives to provide all faculty, postdocs, students, staff, and visiting researchers with an environment in which they can achieve success and satisfaction, and in which they feel welcomed and supported. We recognize that a diverse and inclusive environment leads to better outcomes and opportunities, and we firmly stand against prejudice and discrimination of any kind.

In order to achieve our goal to be an excellent and supportive place to do mathematics, we are committed to providing equity of access and opportunity to all members of our community and to all who wish to become such members, no matter their race, ethnicity, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, neurodiversity status, care giving commitments or socioeconomic background.

Lots of our activities are collaborations with the Equal Opportunity Committee, the Student Council, the Max-Planck-Institute, the International Office or various national and international cooperation partners!

At HCM our gender equity, diversity and inclusiveness initiatives and our family support programs are coordinated by Magdalena Balcerak Jackson.


Equal Opportunity Committee

The Department of Mathematics as a whole has instituted an Equal Opportunity Committee to create, coordinate, and communicate initiatives and activities that further the joint gender equity, diversity and inclusiveness goals and monitors their effectiveness.


If you need assistance or if you have ideas, questions and concerns about our diversity, equity and inclusiveness commitments and inititiatives, or our family support, please get in touch.

Also, if you have experienced or witnessed  any discriminatory behavior, please feel free to report it, or to request a confidential consultation.
