Together for more diversity in society and university
Starting at 1 p.m., the second "Diversity Day" will offer a varied program of workshops, keynote speeches, music and information booths on the topics of diversity and anti-discrimination.
"On this day, we want to work together with regional actors for a more diversity-friendly society, promote exchange and help the topic to become more visible," explains Anouk Almstedt, Diversity Policies Officer at TU Braunschweig. The university wants to open up and also actively promote an understanding of diversity and structural changes at the TU Braunschweig. "Diversity-conscious university development is a long-term process that we want to accompany and actively shape with events such as Diversity Day," says Anouk Almstedt. Anyone who is interested can find out at the Diversity Day what is on offer at the university and beyond to promote a more diverse society.
At 24 booths, initiatives such as the Feminist Café, Refugium, VSE, as well as internal university contact points such as the Diversity Office or the AStA will offer information as well as exciting activities to participate in and exchange perspectives. Special attention will be paid to the Focus 2023: "queer@TU". "We will open Diversity Day by hoisting the rainbow flag," Anouk Almstedt explains the schedule. "Diversity is much more than raising the rainbow flag. But like every year, it's an important way for us to set an example on main campus and show what values we stand for as a university."
In three workshops, visitors will have the opportunity to deal more intensively with diversity, allyship and queerness. Participation is free of charge, registration by e-mail to i.stang(at)tu-braunschweig.de.
English translations of the speeches will be available here, the workshops will be in German.
