Gender & Diversity Strategy
The Department of Mathematics seeks to increase the percentage of women in all areas. This has been a guiding principle of our development for many years and is consistently implemented. Our aim is to achieve equality, family-friendly work and study opportunities, as well as internationalization. Read how the department attains these goals in our Diversity Objectives Agreement (in German).

FACETS of Mathematicians
In the event series FACETS of Mathematicians we meet once a month to thematize career-relevant aspects of mathematical culture. Possible topics are
- gender distribution,
- confidence gap,
- imposter syndrome,
- diversity, and
- compatibility of family and career.
We are very happy for everyone who is interested to participate.
Support at the TUM
Family and career
Coordinating work or studies and a family: the TUM supports you in finding suitable child care, a babysitter for an emergency situation, or in finding a carer for a needy relative. Find more about our offers here.
Whether you are looking for a work placement, to write your thesis or for a job in research - many doors are open for students of our department. We also offer many possibilities for pupils and those interested in studies at the TUM. Find our about the diverse occupations and career opportunities for mathematicians.
The TUM Department of Mathematics is synonymous with diversity. Students of all nationalities are welcome. And we offer our students numerous opportunities for studying or working abroad. For individual advice, please contact our International Office.
Global challenges for Women in Math Science
The Achievement and Entrepreneurial Awards within the project Global challenges for Women in Math Science support scientific careers of female mathematicians by creating study and research opportunities. They honor particularly successful female students and support doctoral students, postdocs and young female scientists.
Detailed information on the program can be found on Global Challenges for Women in Math Science.
Workshop Women in Probability
The scientific program Women in Probability takes place annually. Within the workshop, international female researchers in probability theory report on advances in their field of research. The conference is supported by the program Global challenges for Women in Math Science. Participation is free and visitors of all sexes are welcome.
