Under the motto "Diversity4Research@LMU", various events highlighting the relevance of gender and diversity aspects in research will bring the LMU community together during the summer semester of 2022.

For more diversity in science

Numerous examples from research practice illustrate the relevance of gender and diversity aspects in research. As an example, new insights regarding the diagnosis and therapy of myocardial infarction have been gained by taking the gender dimension into consideration. AI research also shows that a diversity-sensitive approach is necessary to consciously perceive and detect bias and gaps in data sets and systems.

LMU sees great innovation potential in gender and diversity sensitive research designs and approaches.This allows research to respond in a differentiated way to the needs of a diverse society and supports change processes.

The series of events under the motto "Diversity4Research: Sensitive.Innovative.Excellent" intends to highlight the importance of a multidisciplinary and diversity-sensitive approach to research questions, designs and practices for excellent science and innovation and is aimed at students and employees of the university as well as the interested public.

For the full program, please see the event calendar.

Incorporating gender analysis into research contributes to better quality of science. Explicitly considering the different needs of women and men, girls and boys, and gender-diverse people will not only improve the quality of new knowledge, but also increase the social relevance of new products and services.
