Equal Opportunities

Equal Opportunities

The Max Planck Institute for Legal History and Legal Theory relies on outstanding scientific talent and supports its employees regardless of gender, nationality, religion, disabilities, age, cultural background or sexual identity. Our goal is to create an institutional culture in which staff and guests can use and develop their individual abilities. To this end, the mpilhlt uses a variety of measures to foster the work-life balance while simultaneously promoting career advancement.

The MPG Voluntary Commitment, 2017-2020

After the initial voluntary commitment, which ran from 2006-2010, the Max Planck Society has again committed to increasing the proportion of women in higher positions from 2017-2020. Specifically, the goal is to raise the proportion of female scientists and researchers both in W2 and W3 positions and in the E13-E15 salary grades of the Public Service Wage Agreement (TvÖD) by at least one percentage point per year.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We seek to ensure that all members of the mpilhlt and guests conform to appropriate and approved norms of professional conduct in a context free from harassment and any kind of discrimination. In this way, we affirm our commitment to the Max Planck Society’s Code of Conduct, which highlights the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) as a working culture.

This also enables us to foster an atmosphere conducive to collegial and open exchanges of diverse scholarly viewpoints and information. The mpilhlt provides support and ensures that concerns are heard in a safe and confidential setting. Please feel free to contact the directors, head of administration, research coordinator or our DEI Officer if you wish to share your recommendations or concerns regarding our diverse and inclusive work/research environment.
