Dear fellow MPS member,
Welcome to the mailing list of the MPQueer network. Let us shortly introduce the network: MPQueer is a network that works towards the visibility of the LGBTQA+ community within the Max Planck Society (MPS). You don't have to be explicitly and/or openly queer to be part of this network, a certain understanding about the complexity of sex, sexuality and gender should be enough. In other words: If you think you are able to constructively contribute to fruitful discussions on this topic (that is still sensitive to some), you are more than welcome.
Let us also lose a few words about data protection: the MPQueer network is an initiative of the PhDnet Equal Opportunities (EO) Working Group. You can reach us via mpqueer-owner (at) lists.mpg.de.
While everybody in principle can apply for this mailing list, every subscription request is moderated individually to make sure that only MPS members are on that list. If a private mailing list appears, the process involves double checking that this member is part of the MPS. The list of members is visible ONLY to the admins of this page, who are active members of the PhDnet EO working group. Postings to this list can only be made by list members (every external post needs prior approval by the administrator) and can only be seen by list members as well. We take data protection really seriously and emphasize that nobody besides the admins (not even list members) has access to the members' list.
If you have any questions regarding the list, a possible participation or any details regarding the data protection, don't hesitate to contact us via mpqueer-owner (at) lists.mpg.de.
Thank you for your time.
