University of Bremen: Representing diversity: Second week of compatibility

The second week of compatibility will investigate this question. The university invites its employees and students to take part in online events from Monday, April 26, 2021 to Friday, April 30, 2021.
“Family friendliness is important to us,” said Frauke Meyer, Chancellor of the University of Bremen. “I am delighted that we have put such a diverse program off the ground again. The wide range of topics shows how different today’s family models are. We want to take these different needs of employees and students into account. “

Each day of the week is dedicated to a key topic.

The “ Carework : Family” day will start on Monday, April 26th , on which national and international reports will be given on caring for relatives. In addition, a parent coach gives a lecture on the realities and wishes of fathers.

Tuesday is devoted to life crises and mental health. Contributions to the “ mental load ” in relationships, the grief of children or the management of crisis situations are offered.

On Wednesday, the participants in “ Carework : Children” can expect lectures on the situation of foster families, traveling and living with a disabled child, studying with family responsibilities and the social role expectations of boys in (primary) school.

Thursday is all about “self-care & health”. Workshops are offered, for example on the subject of “Cooking with Children”, tips for a better work-life balance in the home office and on the subject of care work.

Friday rounds off the compatibility week with lectures on LGBTQIA + (lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer and intersex) and FLINTA lifestyles (women, lesbians, intersexual, non-binary, trans, agender). For this purpose there is a self-empowerment workshop and an input on the topic of “Dismantling discrimination against trans * people in everyday working life”.
An author and activist introduces the family model “ co-parenting ”. Another event of the compatibility week deals with the Queeraspora, an organization for queer black , indigenous and people of color , the majority of whom came to Bremen as refugees.
