General Professional Skills Courses (ABV) in the skill area of Gender and Diversity Awareness

Due to the current situation, the courses offered in the summer semester 2020 have been modified. Further  information is available on ABV Courses Currently Offered.

As part of the General Professional Skills Courses (ABV), a component of Freie Universität Berlin’s bachelor’s degree programs, the Margherita von Brentano Center (MvBZ) offers five modules (worth 5 credits each) in the skill area of gender & diversity awareness

The courses in each module consist of seminar classes and a 2-day awareness training workshop.

Aided by outside input, discussion, and group-based and interactive methods (such as guided work in small groups and exercises on shifting perspectives), the training workshop aims to sensitize participants to how they deal with ascribed social differences. Reflecting upon one’s own values, modes of behavior, and communication styles is a prerequisite for education in the professional skills required today and builds the foundation for facilitation, discussion, teamwork, and leadership skills.
