Workshops, Team Development and Coaching
The individuals who work and study at the University of Bayreuth differ from each other in many ways, e.g. in their age, their gender and sexual identity, their origin and socialisation, their physical and mental abilities, or even in their ideological orientation.
In co-operation with qualified instructors and coaches, the Diversity Service Centre offers various learning and development opportunities to promote an appreciative approach to diversity and to counteract discrimination in the university context.
All formats are offered on-campus and in digital form. We would be happy to advise you personally!
Workshops: Diversity, Anti-Bias and Non-Discrimination
We regularly organise workshops for staff of the University of Bayreuth. They cover
- the conscious, respectful and constructive handling of diversity
- the examination of implicit bias, and
- the identification, elimination and prevention of disadvantages (non-discrimination).
The workshops are aimed in particular at professors, academic and non-academic executives and persons with coordinating and advisory tasks. Where possible, we are happy to open them to other employees, as well.
Just contact us if you are interested!
Trainings on the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG)
The General Equal Treatment Act regulates the legal protection against discrimination in the field of working life.
The University of Bayreuth provides licences for a 60-minute online training course "AGG for Executives" in English. Please contact us if you are interested!
Team Development for Heterogeneous Teams
Within departments and teams, the differences between the people involved can pose major challenges for cooperation. At the same time, this diversity holds great potential for productivity, creativity and innovation.
If you perceive yourselves as a heterogeneous team and if you want to connect and grow together, we will organise a tailor-made workshop for team development in German or English together with you.
Our services include providing qualified trainers with competencies in the areas of human resources development and diversity as well as rooms with a pleasant ambience.
The specific coordination of your needs and the optimal arrangement of your team development days is carried out by you yourself with the German and English speaking trainers. Please contact us!
Coaching is a umbrella term for resource- and solution-oriented counselling and change processes. Diversity coaching creates space to address individual change topics related to diversity and disadvantage in one's own professional biography, work situation and career development.
The offer is aimed at academic and non-academic executives. It includes five individual sessions of 90 minutes each with an external, qualified coach. Please contact us if you are interested!
