What to do in case of discrimination?
Take your own feelings and the experience of your personal boundaries being infringed seriously.
Do not ignore the incident but speak about it with someone you trust.
Do not accept the discrimination but call it out immediately. Acting early can increase the chances that discrimination stops.
Make a note of the incident and include the date, names, place and possible witnesses.
Seek advice and make use of the counselling services and complaints procedures.
Share information about the University of Kassel’s Directive on Protection against Discrimination and Sexual Violence.
Make it clear that you will not tolerate discrimination.
Take all complaints seriously.
Talk to the person affected in a confidential setting about how to proceed and advise them on support options.
