Our latest “Keeping Members Connected”webinar will be held on Wednesday March 24 from 12:00-13:00 CET. The primary topic will be “Challenges faced by international LGBTIQ+ students.”
The topic of academia and the inherent challenges for LGBTIQ+ persons studying or working within its many layers, is an area sorely in need of attention and discussion. After the inaugural webinar on the 24th of August 2020, and “Queering the Curriculum” on the 23rd of November 2020, Academia@WorkplacePride wants to make further progress and drill deeper into relevant topics.
“Challenges faced by international LGBTIQ+ students”
In this webinar, we will focus on what expectations international LGBTIQ+ students have when they come to study in the Netherlands. Is there enough social safety to be yourself, and what do universities and colleges do to create a solid safety net? What challenges and obstacles do students face, and if and how it affects internships. The role of companies in organising safe internships will also be discussed.
Various speakers from Twente University and Saxion University of Applied Sciences will discuss how they can be more inclusive on the basis of the following questions:
As always with our webinars there will be an interactive Q&A section from the viewers which always deepens the discussion.
This webinar is for Workplace Pride members as well as the general public. Registration is required (for security) for this free event. We hope you can all attend!
