Is Diverse the New Normal?

This event is organized by the Department of Management

Despite the fact that the issue of diversity has been in the public eye for many years, practitioners and academia are still not always on the same wavelength. New political and economic developments – both national and international – have reshuffled the cards on concrete policies with respect to gender, migration background, religion, and sexual orientation. With specialists in the field, we will discuss current and new challenges, and evaluate proposed solutions for the near future.
