The Gender, Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion committee members foster diversity, and advocate a fair gender distribution on all levels at the University of St.Gallen. Our team, including Prof. Thomas Beschorner (chair); Dr. Christa Binswanger (senior Lecturer); Dr. des Sandra King-Savic (post-doc) and Dr. Yves Partschefeld (administration) cooperates closely with the counseling center for "Diversity and Inclusion" and the “Equal Opportunities Commission”.
In addition to supporting equal rights, committee members will assist you with questions regarding, for instance, career-guidance, work-life balance, sexual harassment, and discrimination by way of referring you to a suitable specialist. Confidentiality is guaranteed. We further support hiring-committees, and welcome in-coming and current Ph.Ds. and Post-Docs with a kick-off meeting at the beginning of each semester to acquaint colleagues with the School for Social Sciences and Humanities.
