The lecture illustrates the causes and manifestations of individual, institutional and structural racism in everyday life and at the workplace, especially in educational and research institutions It focuses in particular on academic racism in science and research. However, the lecture also shows what possibilities we have as a community, as individuals and as a research institution to counter racism in its various forms.

The speaker Nursemin Sönmez is a systemic organisational consultant and diversity trainer. She has many years of experience in working with universities, political foundations and educational institutions. Her lecture is intended as an impulse for a stronger exchange and for a sustainable commitment in favour of a discrimination-free environment in our research institutions.

Eid-ul-fitr UFZ

Last night the Muslim festival of breaking the fast started and our PhD students from Pakistan wanted to celebrate together with you their “Eid-ul-fitr” festival, in Germany known as “Zuckerfestival”. This officially ends the holy month of Ramadan and is actually celebrated the following three days together with family and friends in the whole Muslimic world.

This is an occasion of fun and recreation.  At this occasion, people prepare traditional meals for Eid gatherings with friends and family. Every person above the poverty line is supposed to donate some money to poor people. People wear new traditional clothes; especially women ornament themselves with jewelry and apply different patterns and the latest designs of Henna on their hands and feet. Muslims visit relatives and give presents or money (Eidee) to children. Special Eid cards are also sent, to loved ones living far apart with warm wishes and heartiest greetings. The most common way of greeting each other is to say “Eid Mubarak” (Blessed Eid)!

We would like to invite you to celebrate together with us our Eid festival at UFZ:

When: May 6th, 2022, from 5 pm on

Where: UFZ Leipzig,  lecture hall, house 1

Registration: website International Café
