Gender equality at the University of Münster – Data analysis
Analysing data is a prerequisite for shaping and formulating successful gender equality policies at the University of Münster. Based on this data, the University can identify which gender equality measures are especially successful and which areas require immediate attention. A remarkable finding in this context was the significant increase in the number of women professors from 13.7 percent in 2004 to 26.3 percent in 2019. Our analytical work has also highlighted specific areas in which the proportion of women must be increased in order to reach the 40-percent minimum target for all levels of academic qualification as proposed by federal and state authorities.
