Master class with Estela Bensimon at NWO in The Hague

The 'Platform Diversiteit in de Wetenschap' (Platform for Diversity in Academia) is pleased to invite you to an inspiring and informal gathering with prof. dr. Estela Bensimon. She is an important driving force behind the diversity policy at American universities. She is well-known for her development of effective tools to improve the academic success of students from minority groups, but also because she provides clear suggestions of actions universities and other research institutes can undertake in order to achieve true inclusivity, for everyone, both staff and students.

On November 24th, from 9.30 to 12.00, Estela Bensimon will be at NWO in The Hague. The Platform Diversiteit in de Wetenschap will organize a master class for policy makers and decision makers on the subject of diversity in academia. The session will be opened with a presentation, after which participants can submit their own policy and questions and join an informal discussion with Estela Bensimon.

Your presence at the master class will be very much appreciated. If you are planning to join, please inform the organizers (Isabel Hoving of the National Network Diversity Officers, This email address is being protected from spambots.
