A Diversity Committee was established at UvA EB in 2018, made up of academic staff, support staff and students. The Committee's goal is to create a more diverse and inclusive faculty for students and employees.
The faculty's aim is to create a climate and culture where the faculty is enriched by its diversity, where all staff and students, regardless of their differences, are included as part of the academic community. To bring this about, the UvA EB Diversity Action Plan was drafted, containing the focus areas and scope of the faculty’s diversity policy, as well as a set of concrete measures to be taken.
The members of the faculty Diversity Committee are:
The Committee is chaired by Siri Boe-Lillegraven, UvA EB Diversity Officer.
The University of Amsterdam's aim is to be an environment where all students and staff feel at home, regardless of their background. Everyone connected to the UvA should have the opportunity and scope for their personal development. Because each faculty has its own identity and specific issues, each faculty has its own Diversity Officer and Diversity Committee, in addition to the central organisation. They determine diversity policy at their own faculty together with their community and stakeholders.
