The aim of the gender equality reporting pilot project is to ensure regular collation, analysis and publication of equality-related data, indicators and figures. This provides a sound basis for the targeted integration of equality aspects in planning and control processes, for example within the framework of target agreements or development plans. Uniform access to equality-related data facilitates gender-specific evaluations for students and staff as well as professorial appointments. Specific analyses at the faculty level or for specific equality-related issues make it possible to draw up measures and controls that fulfil the relevant requirements. Deficits and successes become visible in various areas and follow-up processes can be initiated.

At present, our gender equality reporting work is focused on:

  1. updating and enhancing the annual reports on equal opportunities for women and men at the University of Passau
  2. making available a comprehensive range of data to establish binding, verifiable and qualitatively improved gender equality targets

This pilot project is conducted by the Equal Opportunities Section in close co-operation with the Reporting and Statistics Section (University Governance Support Division).
