At CLICCS, we promote equal opportunities for all genders. Homophobia and transphobia have no place at the cluster. Our goal is to provide a safe working environment for everyone. Further, we take prompt action against all forms of sexual harassment. If you have any questions or need advice, contact a member of the Gender & Diversity Committee.
In addition, we offer a series of workshops and other event formats specially developed for our female scientists and for girls who want to pursue a career in science.

Held once a year, Girls’ Day is intended to motivate girls and women to pursue technical and scientific professions. The CLICCS School of integrated Climate and Earth Systeme Sciences (SICCS) participates annually in the event.
How do you become a climate researcher?
The event is jointly organized by the Cluster of Excellence CLICCS and the Center for Earth System Research and Sustainability CEN at Universität Hamburg.
At CEN, researchers from such disparate disciplines as e.g. meteorology and peace research are working to find out how we humans can adapt to climate change and what our future will look like.
On Girls’ Day, a member of Universität Hamburg’s Cluster of Excellence CLICCS will tell you who is actually conducting climate research. Afterwards, an expert from the Cluster will share some insights into her work and tell you what she actually does as a climate researcher.
Finally, a tour of the wind tunnel at Universität Hamburg’s Department of Earth Sciences awaits you. There you will have the opportunity to observe and feel wind currents firsthand.
Together with Pro Exzellenzia, a program that has been successfully preparing women for management positions for over ten years, we offer a range of workshops especially for women.
Good negotiations are half the battle – negotiation strategies in the academic world
There are numerous negotiation situations in an academic career – whether as a research assistant, doctoral candidate, in the post-doc phase, when acquiring third-party funding or when taking up a professorship. But these situations aren’t always as clear-cut as when negotiating for a professorship. So what are the concrete negotiation situations? How much leeway is there? And what tips and tricks can help you go into negotiations confidently and well prepared? We’ve invited experts who will give you the answers to these questions. Dr. Stefanie Schönbach-Fuleda, an academic coach and trainer, will show you which negotiation strategies are most successful and what you should avoid doing at all costs. In turn, academics will share with you personal negotiation experiences from their careers.
