Open Friday: Racism in application procedures



  • 10:00 a.m.
  • 2:00 p.m.
Career Center, Online-Meetingroom in Zoom

At a time when societal racism is gaining more attention, scientific studies and media reports attest to something that Germans who have migrated here and international experts from certain countries have long criticized: people who do not have German-sounding names have worse chances in the local job market. As a rule, they receive many more rejections when they apply for jobs. For example, Muslim women who wear head coverings send more than 4 times as many applications than do female applicants with identical qualifications simply to get an interview.

What challenges do citizens who have migrated to Germany face in the German labor market? What kinds of racism does the labor market conceal? What societal solutions are possible? What political demands need to be met?

This event will take place virtually and in German language.
