Diversity, Equity and Inclusion - workshop by Living Institute

In this workshop, we will explore what Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) can bring to academia. We will sort out the myths from the facts and discuss implications for our work. We will also take a dive into unconscious biases to learn why Diversity without Inclusion is a really bad idea... And you might just experience one or two of your own biases. But don’t worry, you will get concrete ideas and tools to help promote DEI in your context of work and avoid biases.

The workshop will be facilitated by Kasper Jelsbech Knudsen, PhD in Anthropology and Partner at Living Institute, a DEI consultancy. Read more about Kasper and Living Institute here.
