At the Fraunhofer IST, teams are formed in as balanced a way as possible. We make use of the creative potential of diversity - with regard to gender, different age groups, cultures and specialist fields - and thereby improve the quality of our work results. We consider diversity to be an enrichment for the work at Fraunhofer. The equal treatment of all employees is not only a matter of course for us - it forms the basis for good collaboration and, as a consequence, ultimately for the success of our institute.
We believe that a strong status for women in science and attractive, family-friendly working conditions are important building blocks in the equality structure. Through a series of measures, we ensure that equal opportunities are promoted and strengthened.
