The Senate has elected Dr. Regina Herzog to be the new equal opportunity representative of the University of Freiburg. Her four-year period in office begins on 1st November 2018. Since the departure of her predecessor Dr. Ina Sieckmann-Bock on 31st March 2018 the post has been vacant.

Regina Herzog is a doctor specializing in transfusion medicine and anaesthesiology. She studied medicine at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, gaining her license to practise medicine in 1988 and her doctorate in 1993. After that she worked at the university hospitals in Munich, Göttingen and Tübingen. Since 2001, the native of Freiburg has worked at the Freiburg University Medical Center, currently in the Institute of Transfusion Medicine and Gene Therapy. In addition, she has been a member of the staff council of the Freiburg University Medical Center since 2014. Alongside her work as a doctor and staff council member, Regina Herzog is committed to working for the Marburger Bund (the body representing all salaried doctors and doctors from the civil service), the Federal State's medical association and the City of Freiburg district medical association.

As equal opportunity representative, Regina Herzog benefits from her professional experience as a member of the staff council, which has familiarized her with issues such as temporary employment, sexual harassment and questions about maternity leave and parental leave. She sees balancing family life and work as another key area of her work. As equal opportunity representative Regina Herzog aims to work in particular to ensure that students become aware of gender equality and equal opportunities matters from an early stage.
