Welcome to the first FEA Event on Diversity and Inclusion

The (newly established) FEA Committee for Diversity and Inclusion is more than excited to invite you on our first ‘FEA Diversity and Inclusion Event’ to take place on Thursday 14 October from 12h30-14h.

In the first part (in English), Nellie Konijnendijk (HR advisor equality VUB) will give a presentation entitled ‘How bias can teach us to be more professional’.

In the second part (in Dutch), the children’s book ‘De allerbeste uitvinding van de hele wereld’ by Shamisa Debroey (Horizon, 2021) will be launched. The book was made in collaboration with FEA members and has the objective to, in a playful way, to break with stereotypes and motivate underrepresented groups (such as girls, kids with a migration backgound) to also chose for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programmes at the university.

In between some impressions from ‘Zomerwijs’, some information on the STEM-workshops organized by our faculty and on the website will be given (in English).

You're welcome to join us in the Vandenhove Pavilion (or via Teams)!
