Important: this event will take place via Zoom – you must register to participate.
This session is for DEI Trainers, Corporate Leaders, HR managers, Higher Education Lecturers, Intercultural Communication Teachers, and everyone else who is interested in Actioning Inclusion!
Nadege Minois, Ishita Ray and Vincent Morvan are the authors of Actioning Inclusion – Handbook for a Socially Responsible Higher Education (2021).
Anchored in reality and taking into account the challenges and contexts where people live, work and study, this new handbook links D&I with CSR in higher education (HE) in an innovative and challenging way. The result of a collective work to extract and articulate knowledge into directly applicable methods, it offers plural perspectives on inclusion by applying the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We are delighted to welcome Nadege, Ishita and Vincent for this session, during which they will share with us some examples of how their handbook offers actionable guidance for your teams and your interactions with learners and all stakeholders.
