European Studies as a guest at 'einewelt haus' in Magdeburg


On May 17th, students of the European Studies programs were guests at the einewelt haus in Magdeburg. The meeting in the context of the Europe Weeks served as a first round of a Get-to-know project between EUmigra and the EUS study programmes, on the occasion of an intended closer cooperation between them.

Firstly, EUmigra and the EUS study programmes were briefly introduced to those present. Afterwards there was a keynote speech by EUmigra about EU citizens in Saxony-Anhalt.  An important part of the meeting was the exploration of cooperation possibilities, e.g. in the form of internships and joint events. This showed that there is a great potential for future cooperation. This first get-to-know round was concluded by a sociable and relaxed exchange over a barbecue snack.

'Jenseits der gläsernen Decke! Wege zur Gleichstellung der Geschlechter', on 23 May 2023 at the university Magdeburg-Stendal - moderated by Professor Dr. Eva Heidbreder


Die Veranstaltung 'Jenseits der gläsernen Decke! Wege zur Gleichstellung der Geschlechter', will take place on May 23rd, 2023,19:15 at the Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences, in Magdeburg.

Jenseits der gläsernen Decke! Wege zur Gleichstellung der Geschlechter

There are still many invisible barriers in universities, as in the church, which is why the diversity of our society is not reflected at the various career levels. This evening will be dedicated to the persisting differences between the sexes. Women systematically earn less and remain underrepresented in leadership positions, even though parity has long been achieved at the undergraduate level. Although the impression is often given that we have already come very far in terms of equality, a closer look still shows how impermeable the "glass ceiling" remains for many women.
What approaches are there to not only break through these ceilings but to eliminate them? What experiences do women and men have with these approaches and what lessons can be learned from them? What concrete measures are being pushed forward at our universities and what remains desirable at our local level? We would like to discuss these questions on the panel and with the audience. (translation of the original text by the University Chaplaincy Magdeburg (ESG)

Afterwards, the audience is invited to a small reception with snacks.
