News from the FU Working Group on Sexualized Harassment, Discrimination and Violence (SHDV)
E-mail address: The Working Group has set up the central e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org for all concerns regarding sexualized harassment, discrimination and violence (SBDG). Irrespective of status, gender and specific concern, all FU members, associates and guests can contact this address if they are affected, have witnessed sexualized assaults or would like to obtain information on the subject. Behind the e-mail address is the office of the working group SHDV, headed by the team of the Chief Gender Equality Officer. The decentralized gender equality officers remain important contact persons at the SHDV, who provide initial counselling themselves and to whom the working group passes along the issue. The new e-mail address is a supplement and is intended in particular to help those affected to find a contact point quickly.
