Gender Board

The CRC is committed to equal opportunities, diversity and a wide range of perspectives. A Gender Board has been established as an organ which is elected/confirmed at the annual general meetings. The Gender Board meets at regular intervals to discuss measures and proposals of the CRC's members. At present, the Gender Board's work in Phase I has mainly focused on the areas of "family support" and "coaching".
