What is diversity? What is inclusion? Can digitalization lead to more equal opportunities and ease our workload?

Mobility should take place at all levels of the university supporting people with many different needs and backgrounds. How diverse are our institutions and how can we respond to and take into account individual needs - at home and abroad?

The next generation of the Erasmus+ Program starting 2021 will focus on inclusion and reaching young people of disadvantaged backgrounds and non-mobile target groups. Therefore, we would like to exchange ideas and experiences during our workshops with you on the following questions: 

 

  • Why do we want to promote diversity and how?
  • How do we contribute to preventing discrimination?
  • How can we change existing patterns of thought and behavior?
  • And what does digitalization actually have to do with it?
  • Will “Erasmus Without Papers” ease my everyday work?

 

We look at diversity and inclusion at the peer-to-peer level of students. We explore what measures the institution can take to create equal opportunities for students and staff, and what other measures can be taken to enrich our (working) lives with diversity and greater equity.

If you are a colleague from one of our partner universities and interested in exchanging ideas about these topics, we are looking forward to welcoming you soon!
