Work environment

At ECE, we attach great importance to a good working environment. For that reason we strive to create a diverse, equal and inclusive environment where both employees and students thrive, grow and innovate. To create an inclusive environment, we recognize the need to respect individual boundaries, respectful communication and awareness of the biases that surround us in our daily lives.

On this page you can read more about the work environment at ECE, our local work environment committee, workplace culture, find links to relevant pages etc. in general at Aarhus University.

Focus ondiversity, equity and inclusion

Creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment takes time and effort and doesn't just happen overnight. ECE has taken several initiatives to achieve our goal of creating a workplace characterized by diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). LAMU and LSU (union representatives, occupational health and safety representatives and management representatives) have been trained and educated in DEI, but also in handling offensive and inappropriate behavior. All employees have also been trained.

Our success depends on us collectively being aware of behavior or actions that are not in line with what ECE wants. We all have a responsibility to:

  • Speak up - if you are being harassed or if you witness it
  • Help a student or employee who is experiencing abusive behavior. 

Our focus is not on pointing fingers. Rather, we want to learn together. That is why we would greatly appreciate your help if you see or experience inappropriate or transgressive behavior. It will help us see patterns of challenges, both small and large. And it will help us take action and create a more inclusive work environment.

You can always contact your manager, union representative or health and safety representative for a confidential conversation.
