The event is a platform for inspiration for those engaged in the work of policy change-making on the ground as well as for everyone else who is interested in the broader context of university leadership on diversity, equity, and gender.
We have invited Lynn Roseberry who is a diversity consultant and the owner and director of On the Agenda, a gender and diversity consultancy based in Copenhagen.
For this event, Lynn Roseberry will give a presentation on:
“Inclusive excellence in research and the work environment: Why? How?”
After Lynn Roseberry’s presentation, representatives who work with formulating and implementing diversity policies at different Danish Universities, as well as representatives from IGN’s diversity committee will join the discussion of what inclusive excellence can mean in our respective communities.
Universities around the globe prioritize leadership on diversity, equity and gender. As knowledge institutions, universities are increasingly aware that diversity is a driver of excellence in research, teaching and administration and that strategic leadership on diversity, equity and gender benefits not only the university itself but is a vehicle for realizing a more just society.
Additionally, many universities are responding to external pressures from funding bodies and social movements. For example, an increasing number of funding bodies including the European Horizon Programme require explicit leadership stances on questions of diversity and equal opportunities and societal movements like #metoo and #blacklivesmatter have placed gender and racial equity high on the broader societal agenda.
Danish universities also are responding to these movements, and new policies and practices are being implemented across departments, faculties, and rectorates in Denmark.
The Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management (IGN) established a Diversity Committee in 2020 to secure long-term infrastructures that support diversity, equity and inclusion.
The Diversity Committee is responsible for drafting suggestions for policies and principles at the departmental level to strengthen inclusive excellence in research and the work environment.
