Academia@WorkplacePride Launching Webinar

24th August 2020 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

CET Timezone

We are pleased to invite you to our next live webinar in our “Keeping Members Connected”series. This webinar will launch our new program “Academia@WorkplacePride” which deals with the topic of LGBTI inclusion for the faculty, staff and students of universities and other higher educational institutions as well as research organizations. 

Academia@WorkplacePride joins our other programs focusing on LGBTI women, young people, and technically focused people. The program and this launching webinar will address the many issues specific to academia such as: 

  • Are universities sufficiently clear and open regarding LGBTI inclusion for students, staff and faculty?
  • How do administrators include LGBTI topics in their policies and planning and how will they address creating progress when needed?
  • Is faculty sufficiently briefed on what LGBTI discrimination actually looks like and on how to combat it? 
  • Do LGBTI students from locations where homosexuality is criminalised or not culturally accepted feel safe in our institutions? How about exchange students from ‘safe’ countries to high risk countries?
  • Does introducing Diversity and Inclusion policies in an institution conflict with researchers’ freedom of thought?
  • How do LGBTI policies affect the curriculum taught at universities? How to address “Queering the Curriculum”?
