Who should attend
The Gender Dynamics in the Global Workplace programme is specifically designed for bachelor students and graduates interested in working abroad and discovering new cultures or looking to study a further degree in Germany.
About the course
In this programme you will explore the gender dynamics in the modern global workplace.
Learn more about various workplace issues within global and local contexts, with a special focus on Berlin businesses. While Iceland has recently introduced a new law to pay equal wages for both men and women, it is a fact that German women are still paid on average 21% less than men. Gender pay gap, inequality and sexual harassment are only some of the controversial issues that are being discussed nowadays. Legal and cultural differences are leading to different outcomes worldwide, as social media keep playing a fundamental role.
