Anniversary event 30 years of the Equal Opportunities Working Party

The Equal Opportunities Working Party of the University of Vienna advocates a diversity-oriented university culture that condemns all forms of discrimination, actively promotes equality and respects the rights and dignity of all university members. The recognition of diversity should be considered the norm and requires the development of participatory and activating structures integrating students, academics and university staff.
