Brave Conversation – Diversity, inclusion & THUAS

In short

Date:

19 February 2021

Time:

13:00 - 14:30

Location:

Online Event

What does the Taskforce Diversity and Inclusion do to help The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) become a truly inclusive Campus? What theme’s and topics are already being addressed, and where do you feel more attention is due?

True inclusion can only be reached in collaboration. That is why in 2021 THUAS’ Taskforce Diversity and Inclusion is organising a series of four roundtable discussions that we call "Brave Conversations". These conversations are aimed at showing our THUAS community and our environment the actions and activities for more inclusion and against exclusion that are already taken. Together we will explore whether these actions are the right ones and where (more) action is needed. And we would like to include you into that conversation!

The first of these four conversations will be held on February 19 from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. During this (online) table discussion led by Lynn Zebeda, co-founder of innovation studio Dr. Monk, the members of the Taskforce Diversity and Inclusion, together with a number of guests from the THUAS community and the audience at home will explore the most important themes for today's THUAS. In addition, we will look ahead to the future. The audience, participating from home, has an important and active role in this most needed conversation. Your opinion is not only appreciated, but is indispensable in achieving a truly inclusive agenda.

Myron Hamming, the spoken word artist who placed third during the contest in context of the annual Martin Luther King Lecture, will provide an inspiring intermezzo. 

We hereby invite you to take part in the event and in the conversation. You can sign up via this form. The required details will only be used to end out personal access links to the event and will not be archived afterwards.

The second conversation will take place in May. As a logical next step to the first meeting, during this second meeting both room and recognition will be given to experiences of exclusion within our community. By recognising these experiences and by actively listening and learning as a community, we make our joint actions even more effective.

Feel free to forward this invitation to anyone who might be interested in attending. We hope to see you on the 19th February.
