With the Hildegard Hamm-Brücher Prize for Equal Opportunities in Chemistry, the GDCh honors exemplary behavior in promoting more equal opportunities in chemistry. Individuals, teams, groups or organizations who are committed to or have committed themselves to equal opportunities with innovative projects are to be recognized.
Equal opportunities should be an internalized pattern and a matter of course for every individual and every organization. It should show itself in the diversity of people who bring different backgrounds, experiences, skills, values, perspectives and beliefs to a group or organization as a value contribution in which they interact.
Prof. Dr. Petra Mischnick is the first recipient of the Hildegard Hamm-Brücher Prize for equal opportunities in chemistry. Ms. Mischnick is a great role model for living equal opportunities and has stood up for it all her life. She received the award in recognition of her achievements as an excellent scientist, as the founder of one of the first university experimental laboratories for schoolchildren and as a pioneer for more equal opportunities in chemistry.
Hildegard Hamm-Brücher has published two articles about her doctoral supervisor Heinrich Wieland in Chemistry in Our Time, which you can find under the following links:
We thank Wiley-VCH for the exclusive free access to the two ChiuZ articles.
The Commission for Equal Opportunities in Chemistry of the GDCh forms the selection committee. This selects a proposal from the nominations according to the above criteria and submits it to the GDCh Board for a decision. The selection process follows the general guidelines for GDCh awards.
