The Decentralized Equal Opportunity Representatives are the contact persons for all ideas, problems and matters concerning equal opportunities at the faculty. They have the task to comment on the target agreements, to participate in committee meetings and appointment commissions.
According to the Ruhr University's development plan, "equality" is about "equal opportunities between women and men". And for RUB this is a central criterion of university development and is designed as a cross-sectional task. The work of the RUB's central Equal Opportunities Representatives is supported by other decentralized Equal Opportunities Representatives in each of the 20 faculties. Elected by the Faculty Council, they are the official representatives of female professors, scientific staff, technical and administrative staff, and all female students.
The RUB Central Equal Opportunity Office published an article about the faculty's mentoring program "BreakING" in the second issue of its magazine CHANCEN=. The magazine is funded by the Lore Agnes Program and aims to actively shape the equal opportunity campus culture and bring equality issues into the public focus. The magazine can be read online here.
On 6 October 2022, student mentees and their mentors from the field, as well as other invited guests, will celebrate the promising start of the new "BreakING" programme, which was initiated by a team around the Equal Opportunities Officer of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Many students face the challenge of having to manage their studies and care work at the same time. This double burden often leads to stress, time constraints, financial difficulties and stressful feelings. Therefore, the RUB Psychological Counseling Service would like to get into an exchange with affected students and invite them to a break from everyday life with coffee & cake:
Both events will take place at the OASE (peer quarter), Buscheyplatz 3.

In the two-day workshop - aimed at female students of color and/or migrant students - (gender-specific) communication patterns in the workplace will be discussed and various strategies practiced. The workshop is complemented by the topic of racism and how it can be identified and named. Through the methodical interlocking of power, gender and racism, the workshop will elaborate on how complexly these factors interact and how to counteract this construct in a targeted and conscious manner.

As part of the starter event for women, the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) – the world's largest strategy consultancy with more than 2,600 employees in Germany and Austria – offers female students the opportunity to gain a closer insight into BCG and five purpose principals. The program includes interactive coaching, speaker sessions, case studies as well as a hike in the Tyrolean mountains. In the follow-up interviews, participants can secure a direct entry into BCG.
