Gender Equality Action Plan for the Academy
acatech is convinced that it is necessary to have as broad and balanced a range of perspectives as possible in order to provide policymakers and society with advice geared to the common good and has therefore set itself the goal of achieving gender equality. This applies to both the acatech office with all its employees and the entire Academy, consisting of its scientific members. The equality goals were already formally defined in 2018 in the new version of the “Principles for Gender Equality at acatech”, which was presented to the Joint Science Conference (GWK). The Gender Equality Action Plan for the Academy and its sister publication Gender Equality Action Plan for the acatech Office now each evaluate the current progress in achieving the set goals and outline possible measures for further increasing the proportion of women at acatech.
