Diversity Day at the HWR Berlin
HWR Berlin promotes the diversity of its members and perceives their potential as enrichment. It sees itself as an open, inclusive and diverse university. Therefore, it participates in the activities around the "German Diversity Day" of the association Charta der Vielfalt. All members of HWR Berlin are invited: students, lecturers, and employees. The event will take place as part of the Studium Generale.
How can we promote diversity?
We want to live our diversity – and we need you, your experiences, and your perspectives!
Whatever else we need for this, we would like to find out together with you.
During the event, you choose the topics that move you and that you would like to talk about in small groups: Where do you see a need for action? Do you have a concrete measure in mind that could support diversity? Or do you have ideas about how it could be implemented?
Be curious, join the discussion, and bring your topics – no matter which part of the university you come from or if you study, teach, or work at HWR Berlin.
Please note, that parts of the event will be held in German only (but your contribution can be made in English).
