Taking a stand for diversity and inclusion
On May 31, 2022, the 10th nationwide Diversity Day takes place. Once again, the University of Siegen wants to set an example for tolerance and against discrimination. Therefore, a number of events focusing on gender diversity are planned. This year’s motto is “#TINklUSiv Trans*, Inter*, Non-Binary – Gender Diversity”. Diversity and equality are important topics for the DFG and the Research Training Group. For this reason, we would like to draw your attention to the Diversity Day events:
On May 31, 2022, a lecture on experiences, challenges and opportunities of gender diversity at universities will be given. On June 2, 2022, Jayrôme C. Robinet presents his new book “Mein Weg von einer weißen Frau zu einem jungen Mann mit Migrationshintergrund“, in which he shares his experience of social perception and stereotyping based on role models from the point of view of a transgender person – a white woman is turned into a male immigrant. Finally, on June 3, and a workshop for employees in science, technology and administration concerning gender diversity in everyday work takes place.
