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.


How to Participate

Do you work at RWTH Aachen and think your boss sets a great example for making family, care, and career compatible in the work place? Then nominate them for the award. A jury chooses a winner from the nominations that are received and well founded.

This year's nomination period ended on February 15, 2023. For this reason, currently, no nominations will be accepted.

The Famos für Familie award ceremony, honoring both the 2020 and 2021 award winners, took place virtually this year due to the pandemic. The winner’s staff members, the rectorate, and the jury members were also invited to participate.

Music for the event was provided by the Carbon String Quintet of RWTH’s Collegium Musicum, and speeches were held in the form of creative videos and presentations in which each team appreciated the family-friendly leadership style of their supervisor.
