Diversity Podcast

The “Diversity Spotlights” podcast is concerned with the different features of diversity like gender, sexual identity/orientation, culture/world view and religion, social background, health/illness, age and appearance. These features influence who we are, but, more importantly, they also influence how we are being seen by others. In a society in which privileges and positions are not distributed evenly, this also means that we need to address mechanisms of exclusion, discrimination and inequalities in participation as well as resource distribution.

 

This is what we are doing with a whole range of dialogue partners. 

 

Below each episode, you can find our “more on the topic” section that provides more information in form of glossaries, book and audio recommendations, contacts at the University and local networking and empowerment opportunities.
