Diversity at Erasmus University Rotterdam

A lecture all about diversity: Chief Diversity Officer Hanneke Takkenberg talks about the importance of diversity at Erasmus University during the Science Cafe on Monday 27 June 2016.   

As a university of ambitious thinkers and doers, Erasmus University is convinced that education and research benefit most from a diverse population of scientists, people from different cultures who each contribute their own opinion, knowledge and experience. But why is diversity so important in science? And: how can it be that while diversity is so important, the majority of the leaders in the university are Dutch middle aged males? What is the role of Inclusion? Finally: how can we achieve excellence by adding up diversity and inclusion?

Those are topics covered by Prof. Hanneke Takkenberg, Chief Diversity Officer at Erasmus University Rotterdam, during the Science Café (‘Wetenschapscafé’).
