For six years now, the Diversity Week "You make the difference!" has been taking place every summer semester at the University of Cologne.This action week is organized by the Vice-Rectorate for Academic Career and Equal Opportunities together with the Department of Gender & Diversity Management.
The aim of the Diversity Week is to raise awareness of the University of Cologne's approach to diversity, difference and equal opportunities through events, activities and information, and to draw attention to the relevant offers and institutions at the University. Within the framework of Diversity Week, numerous institutions at the University offer workshops, lectures, readings and campus activities and open their courses to those interested.

Thank you for a successful Digital Diversity Week 2020!

Despite the unusual circumstances, it was possible to put together a programme of 30 interesting and wide-ranging events as part of the 6th Diversity Week from 22-26 June 2020 and to address the topics of diversity and equal opportunities even in these uncertain times.  The department for Gender & Diversity Management would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed innovative ideas and participated actively in the digital events!
