Guidelines for Equal Opportunity Offices at Egyptian Universities
From 3 to 8 November 2013, representatives of the four Egyptian partner universities visited Freie Universität Berlin to discuss guidelines for equal opportunity offices at Egyptian universities. The guidelines will be developed in form of a "living handbook" which enables all project members to contribute to the contents via an interactive Wiki platform. The results will be published on the web in order to make the experiences that have been made in the project within the last two years avaiable for the broader public. At a later stage, the contents shall be adapted to the needs of a print version. For the development of the handbook, two workshops in Egypt as well as an online writing lab are planned for 2014.
In the context of the workshop, the Presidents of Sohag Unversity, Prof. Dr. Nabil Elgrably, and South Valley University, Prof. Dr. Abbas Mansour, visited Freie Universität Berlin in order to gain insights to the different programs and institutions working in the field of equal opportunities at Freie Universität Berlin. During their three-days stay in Berlin, they met Mechthild Koreuber, Chief Gender Equality Officer at FU Berlin, and Prof. Dr. Brigitta Schütt, project manager and Vice-President, among others.
