Gender & Diversity Management

We take great care to promote equality for all people in all areas of society and to create awareness of the relevance of the categories “gender” and “diversity” at FH Campus Wien and in our teaching.

To do this, we implement a number of measures:

Diversity Management Award for FH Campus Wien

In December 2016, FH Campus Wien was awarded the “Diversitas” prize by the Federal Ministry for Science, Research and Economy. The prize money is used to implement project measures with the aim of promoting accessibility for students and an open and supportive university culture towards students and employees with disabilities and chronic diseases.

Charter of Diversity

As an important sign of its commitment to diversity management, FH Campus Wien was the first university of applied sciences in Austria to sign the Diversity Charter in autumn 2011.

Code of Conduct for responsible cooperation

In 2012, the university management of FH Campus Wien decided to put a code of conduct into effect for the university of applied sciences. This also includes a commitment to equal opportunity and diversity:
FH Campus Wien recognizes the diversity and differences of the people associated with it in terms of gender, age, sexual orientation, skin color, physical and psychological abilities/disabilities and ethnic origin as special values. Internationality and cultural diversity are strategic goals of the institution. Equality and diversity principles have a prominent place in the Code of Conduct and are also anchored in the mission statement and the strategic orientation of FH Campus Wien.

Restrooms for all

At the FH Campus Wien, in addition to the toilets marked F and M, there are also some unisex toilets at the main campus and at the Kelsenstraße location. These can be used by all people, regardless of their gender identity.

They should be safe places where - as everywhere in the house - there is respectful behavior.

For countless people, the facilities behind a toilet door are more important than the "for women - for men" label on the door. And for some people, an exclusively two-gender system does not allow them space or choice when choosing a restroom because of their gender identity - such as inter* or intersex, non-binary, genderfluid (PDF 196 KB), trans* students and staff.

The introduction of the official gender classifications diverse, open (in January 2019) as well as inter or a complete deletion of the entry (2020) in Austria for intergender people is a visible sign of the fact that a dual system falls short. "Restrooms for all" - together with toilets for women and men - offer all people the choice to use the toilet that suits them best.
