Lecture with Qaisar Mahmood about Diversity

seminars, workshops |

The equal opportunities committee at the NJ faculty welcome you to a lecture on diversity.

Invited speaker is Qaisar Mahmood, who has been writing and debating issues related to identity, cultural heritage, education, leadership and more recently diversity ˗ why it is so difficult but also absolutely necessary. Qaisar gives us concrete tools for how diversity can become an asset and about the need to surround ourselves with differences and see our society but also our workplaces from different perspectives.

After the lecture, vice dean for equal opportunities, Marina Queiroz, invites those of you who want to continue discussing diversity and how academia can become more inclusive to another 45 minutes of joint discussion (same Zoom link).
