The Educational Integration Centre (ZBI) is participating in the German Diversity Day, initiated by the German Diversity Charter, for the fifth time. This year, the ZBI is cooperating with the Equal Opportunities Office, the Centre for Gender Studies (ZfG), and the student initiative hi_queer.
In its new edition, the Diversity Day looks into gender and sexual orientation. The most recently published results of the study “Attitudes towards lesbian, gay, and bisexual people” (2017), conducted by the Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency (“Antidiskriminierungsstelle des Bundes”, ADS), are presented.
Afterwards, Prof. Dr. Martin Lücke (Freie Universität Berlin) discusses gender equality and LGBTI from a historic point of view. The student initiative hi_queer concludes the Diversity Day with a thematic film screening.
The Diversity Day takes place at the University of Hildesheim (new building, atrium) on 30 May 2017.
