ECHO Awards

Rewarding role models and drivers for social change

Basic Information

Gender
Faculty Name:
We ask this question as this award is designed for students from ‘a non-Western background

Currently the definition provided by ECHO cites their perspective as being:
  • Dutch students with a non-western background;
  • Students with a refugee background;
  • International students who identify as part of a marginalized community in their own context
Nonetheless ECHO is aware of the changing social context behind the term ‘non-western’ and the challenges involved in defining the target group(s).  Even though this definition appears to be no longer tenable, as drivers for positive societal impact ECHO & EUR still encourage students to apply.

Case Questions

Case 1

Provide advice for your higher education institution. Many higher education institutions are struggling with the reality of a diverse student population. This is also evident from the large gap that exists in the study success of native Dutch students and Dutch students with a non-Western background. This often has to do with the fact that students with a non-Western background do not feel at home at the institution and do not see their identity and perspectives reflected in the curriculum and the teachers.

Assignment:

As ECHO Ambassador you may be asked to participate in meetings with education professionals as sparring partner. In this role you can be asked to share ideas, advice and suggestions on how to make a learning environment more inclusive. Please share three recommendations that you would offer the educational institution you are studying at and explain how your ideas can contribute to a more inclusive learning environment.

Case 2

Provide advice for an employer of your choice. Many young people with a non-western background struggle to find a job after graduation. This may be related to limited job application skills, but also to exclusion mechanisms on the labour market.

Assignment:

As ECHO Ambassador you may be asked to participate in sessions for employers from the corporate industry or in the public sector. In this role you may be asked about your ideas, advice and suggestions to improve the image of a company for a diverse target group.
