Support from the gender equality officers

The most important part first: We are there for you!

The gender equality officers are there for all female* and trans* members of ASH Berlin and will provide advice on gender-specific questions and problems arising in administrative work, studies or teaching. 

Advice on work-related topics and university policies

For example, potential issues could be:

  • Discrimination
  • Bullying
  • What is sexual harassment? What should I do if I feel I am being sexually harassed?
  • Information on scholarships and programmes to promote women
  • Combining work and studying with family life
  • Implementing academic and policy-related projects

Trans* advice

TRANS*? GENDERQUEER? NON-BINARY? Are you looking for exchange and advice for your own discussion? Do you need help and support in your everyday university life as a trans* person? Lecturers or fellow students ask you cross-border and/or trans*hostile questions? Or use the wrong pronoun? Do you experience exclusion, discrimination and/or violence?

Our consulting services are aimed at all students and university members of the ASH Berlin whose self-denomination is based on a trans* spectrum. How you describe yourself and whether one of the trans* terms is suitable for you at all is up to you. We only use trans* with an asterisk here as a placeholder for a variety of self-designation options. 

In addition to a personal consultation (after an individual appointment), we can also offer you the possibility of a consultation by telephone or e-mail. Our consultation is:

  • result open
  • free
  • anonymous on request 

In addition, we would also be happy to put you in touch with one of the further advisory services in Berlin.


Contact person is our gender equality officer. Please arrange an appointment by email or come and see us at the office.
