Introduction to the Toolbox

What is the Toolbox?

The toolbox of the project "Chancengleichheit Intersektional" offers basic and more in-depth information on the topics of (anti-)discrimination, diversity and equal opportunities, equality and intersectionality.

The toolbox is intended to serve as a contact point for people in need of basic information, theories and concepts and who want to deal with the above-mentioned topics further, as well as a collection point for advice and support offers in the event of incidents of discrimination or sexualised violence.

It is divided into two categories: the weblink collection, which offers a large number of links to basic and further information, theories and concepts as well as freely accessible further training opportunities, and the second important component, a collection of contacts to counselling and support offers on a wide range of discrimination and incidents of abuse of any kind.


Who is the toolbox for?

The toolbox is aimed at a broader audience and is intended to serve not only people at the School of Business and Economics at Humboldt University, but also other members of the university and the general public.

The toolbox is there for anyone who wants to continue their education on topics such as diversity, equal opportunities, equality and diversity. A specific focus of the link exchange is diversity and equality in the field of economics.
