The Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) team invites UvA students and staff for five Diversity & Inclusion lunches. Everybody is welcome, though we especially invite those who are committed to working in cultural change, inclusion, equity, decolonization and awareness around diversity-related topics. We would like to gather the knowledge and strengths of students and staff, and find ways in which we can empower and support each other in the process of cultural change at the UvA.

The people who work and study at the Roeterseiland complex represent a diverse medley of backgrounds and life stories.

The inclusive expression of stories at the Roeterseiland Campus will be exhibited from 4 February 2020!
