Straat in Rotterdam in de zomer.

Rotterdam has a rich landscape of civil society organizations working on diversity and inclusion. There are manifold networks and connections between organizations, but also lots of fragmentation. An encompassing database of organizations is missing and fora to discuss collaborations are scarce.

With this in mind we organize the Remapping Rotterdam Forum.

More than 100 civil society organizations working on diversity, inclusion, equality and antidiscrimination were invited – along many researchers passionate about similar issues.

The event offers the following exchange and learning opportunities:

13:30 Arrival en welcome

14:00-15:00: Relations and power in diversity and inclusion networks in Rotterdam Presentation and discussion of research findings and of a shared database of civil society organizations in the city
