Award for Family-Friendliness

Whoever heads an organization unit, is also responsible for tasks and employees. Through a responsible management style, managers can particularly ensure that career and family or care are compatible with each other. RWTH Aachen honors the commitment of its employees to family-friendliness with the "FAMOS für FAMILIE" award". The prize is awarded by the University's Family Services Center and is endowed with 500 Euros.
