Anti-Discrimination Office

Equality Officer & coordination of anti-discrimination and anti-racism activities

Anti-discrimination = protection against disadvantages and unfavourable treatment because of gender, origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, personal status, appearance etc.

Discrimination at universities may arise in various domains:

for students: during admission procedure, student financing, study progress, for instance in examinations, or while entering the professional world

for employees: during advertising and recruitment, regarding payment, access to qualification and carreer opportunities, in the personnel management or the organisation of work

The The General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) requires any employer to take adequate measures to avoid disadvantages.

If they have any complaints, HNEE employees can contact Katja Hiller, Human Resources Department.

You can also contact us at anti-discrimination@hnee.de. Experiences of discrimination often lead to psychological stress: You can also make use of the psychosocial counselling service of the Studentenwerk Frankfurt/O.
