Diversity Awards



The Brigitte-Gilles-Award, awarded annually by RWTH Aachen University, honors projects and measures with an innovative character that make a significant contribution to the advancement of women. These include measures that improve the conditions for studying, teaching and research as well as the organization of women's work. In addition, the prize is awarded to projects that contribute to increasing the number of female students and scientists in subjects with a low proportion of women. The successful implementation of demands from the RWTH's equal opportunities plan can also be recognized.
