This PDW aims to foster a discussion about how to promote an inclusive culture inside and outside the classroom. The starting point of this discussion is the exploration of inclusion in academia from a broad range of different disciplines, geographical, and theoretical perspectives with the common aim of approaching ways for combating inequality and fostering diversity and inclusion.
Please send an email to the organizers describing your interests and expertise (highly preferred, but not required for attendance).
