The objective(s) of the tool

Processing data gender-specifically allows for assertions concerning the actual situation of women and men. In doing so, subjective assessments concerning student body composition and academic performance of the various groups can be evaluated. The data additionally permits conclusions connected to implicit hierarchies and mechanisms of exclusion, establishing the argumentative basics for changes directed towards gender parity and gender equity.

The Women’s Report contains the following sections:

  1. Male/female degree completion rates for TU Wien in its entirety
