Representative for equal opportunity and family affairs
Dr.-Ing. Dorina Strieth and Dipl.-Ing. Isabell Behrendt are both research assistants and also hold the function of Equal Opportunity Representatives at the Department for Mechanical and Process Engineering.
They obey an advisory function towards the FB MV when it comes to promotion of women (e.g. in appeal procedures). Dorina Strieth and Isabell Behrendt are also contact persons for any matters that concern equal opportunity and work and family compatibility for students and research assistants.
The call for more women in scientific teams is getting bigger and bigger from society as well as investors. It is important to promote qualified women at an early stage and win them for the TU Kaiserslautern. To motivate women to choose an academic career and thereby raise the number of female professors longterm is one of the main goals. Dorina Strieth and Isabell Behrendt help the Department with their important work to strengthen competitiveness and sustainability.
