Nominated for the German Study Award: Venturing more gender equality in employment life

Ann-Christin Bächmann, LIfBi employee, has been nominated for this year’s Körber Foundation Study Award. In her dissertation entitled “Berufliche Geschlechtersegregation und Geschlechterungleichheiten auf dem deutschen Arbeitsmarkt [Occupational Gender Segregation and Gender Inequality in the German Labor Market]” at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, she examines the unequal distribution of occupational patterns among women and men in Germany and their effects. Her objective: to identify starting points for creating more gender equality in the business world.

The German Study Award  is awarded annually to the best German doctoral students from all disciplines. In addition to scientific excellence, the specific social significance of the research contributions is of particular importance: The young scientists are encouraged to emphasize the social value of their research achievements and to engage in public debate about them. This year, 31 research papers by young academics are nominated for the German Study Award (German only). Ann-Christin Bächmann  is one of ten nominees from the social sciences. A total of 489 participants had submitted a paper this year.

During the final round of the competition, starting at the end of June, the nominees present their research to the jury. In each of the three sections—social sciences, natural sciences and technology, as well as humanities and cultural sciences—one top prize of €25,000 and two second prizes of €5,000 will be awarded.

Ann-Christin Bächmann’s dissertation was developed as part of the project  “Occupational Sex Segregation and Its Consequences For the (Re-)Production of Gender Inequalities in the German Labor Market” supervised by Prof. Dr. Corinna Kleinert and Prof. Dr. Kathrin Leuze. Using data from the NEPS Starting Cohort 6, the researchers examined various stages of female and male employment paths, such as entry into the labor market, career mobility, interruptions, and reentries.
