University of Helsinki > Personnel Services

The purpose of the policy and practice of the University of Helsinki regarding equal opportunities is to promote equality in the academic community and to prevent all discrimination on grounds of gender, age, ethnic or national origin, religion, belief, sexual orientation, disability or any other comparative grounds (Regulations Concerning Equal Opportunities, §1), and, in the spirit of the Act on Equality between Women and Men, to advance the position of women, particularly in working life. As an educator of future experts in their fields, the University must be a forerunner in these issues by creating practices that assure equality as well as a tolerant atmosphere.
