Personal development

An instruction guide for Max Planck

The Working Party for the Promotion of Female Scientists has drawn up a guide to provide a constructive interface for female scientists and their female colleagues. It is given to each newly-appointed male scientist and each newly-appointed female scientist, and is divided into three parts. First of all, it looks at the backgrounds for discrimination of men and women in the science world. Then it lists examples of situations in which women could feel discriminated against or unfairly treated, with the ultimate aim of making concrete proposals for how being treated differently can be avoided.

How can we make it better?

  • Committing to memory the names of female scientists by achievement criteria
  • Avoiding stereotypes in personal assessment
  • Inviting applications when filling positions and using databases to identify male/female scientists with certain profiles
  • Giving junior female scientists specific opportunities to heighten their profile
