Gender equality has been an important aim ever since MCL was founded in 1999. Research, development and innovative activities benefit from different approaches and perspectives in problem solving. Teams with employees from different backgrounds and the equal funding of women and men create an inspiring working environment and promote a culture of openness, diversity and appreciation.
For a research institution like MCL, a qualified, diverse and motivated staff is the most important asset. In recent years, MCL has increased the number of highly qualified staff. At the same time, the number of female employees has also developed quite well. An open-minded gender culture is an important element for achieving the aspired high level of scientific excellence and innovation.
