Gender, Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion from an international perspective
At the KP International Week, we celebrate international collaboration within our various academic fields. This year we also invite you to join us for a global debate on Gender, Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion from an international perspective.
How do we address inequalities within our schools and welfare institutions? How do we support inclusion, diversity, and gender equity? And how do we prepare our students to work with these issues in their future professions?
These are highly topical questions that the world faces due to increased global awareness and current challenges to human rights in both old and new democracies. We believe that our educational institutions are obliged to participate in such important debates and implement adequate measures to promote equality, diversity, and inclusion. We also believe that an international exchange of knowledge and experience is crucial to this endeavour. As we are celebrating our international collaboration, we, therefore, welcome you to join us in our effort to raise awareness and insight on gender, equality, diversity, and inclusion from an international perspective.
