The State of Diversity at UvA

Starting 8 November 2018 the CDO Team will be organizing monthly diversity events to raise awareness and promote diversity and decoloniality within and beyond our academic community. The CDO Team will also be introducing their members and collaborative work to the academic community for the first time. We aim to create safer, visible and interactive spaces where students, staff and bottom-up collectives can meet regularly to talk, exchange ideas and plan related activities. We will be centralizing the voices and work of marginalized communities and in doing so opening up spaces to actively do diversity and move beyond theorizing.

The UvA strives to be an inclusive university, a place where everyone may develop to their full potential and feel welcome, safe, respected, supported and valued. Through community involvement with the rich diversity of Amsterdam we work to make the UvA a place that embraces opportunities to engage with the complex questions of heritage and social responsibility. By cooperating with the university and local communities we facilitate and mobilize centralized and decentralized support for diversity of people and knowledges.

It is promising to be a very exciting and beautiful event in the history of the UvA and we hope you will join us.
