We invite you
to move with us

With our gender and diversity expertise, we accompany organizations in the comprehensive promotion of equity.

We work for you and with you to support a cultural change towards a sustainable development of equal opportunities and inclusion.

A high degree of openness and sensitivity in dealing with current social developments characterizes our research.

The coaching and workshops offered by MOVES are based on systemic, solution- and actionoriented approaches.

What we do


Our understanding of research is based on a Responsible Research and Innovation approach. This means that we focus on societal challenges and tie our activities to the highest ethical standards.


Through a four-step process – the four Gender Mainstreaming (GeM) steps – we support you in developing and sustainably anchoring a corporate culture that appreciatively uses the potential of diverse perspectives.


Our workshops fundamentally strengthen the ability to think and act in an equality-oriented way and promote a corporate, organizational or team culture that is characterized by equal opportunities.


Systemic-constructivist coaching is an effective method to work on problems in a focused and solution-oriented way within a short period of time. The topics are manifold, the focus is on individual empowerment.
