Within the Faculty of Science there are various projects aimed at improving diversity and inclusion. Including Science4all and Women in the Faculty of Science.
Women in the Faculty of Science - Student Chapter (WiF Students) focuses on the interests of female science students at the University of Amsterdam. Women are underrepresented in many studies and academic positions at the Faculty of Science. WiF Students wants to close this gender gap.
WiF Students organizes lectures, brainstorming sessions and other activities. Sign up here for a mailing list to stay informed of future events.
In March 2019 the Faculty of Science started the grassroots programme Science4all. Staff and students are invited to apply for financial support for projects aimed at improving diversity and inclusivity at the Faculty of Science. Per project there was between €500 and €5,000 available.
