- Meeting Point
The Diversity Office will be offering a series of monthly Let’s Talk sessions.
Come, listen and connect!
Our community is more diverse than one might at first assume. Having said that, what does that really mean? It means that we have a wealth of stories that weave us together as a community. To understand and feel comfortable with those stories we have to listen, engage, and connect. The stories are everywhere, but you may need to make some effort to connect with those that may initially seem so different from your own. So how do you do that?
The Diversity Office will be offering a series of monthly Let’s Talk sessions. During these talks a Leiden University community member will share their personal story with the group. Afterwards a discussion will be facilitated. How did you connect with that story? What did it remind you of? How is it different from or similar to your own story?
Thursday 16 February
On Thursday February 16th we will have a talk with Malik Alzeen. Malik has been active in supporting refugees and their surrounding communities since his own arrival from Syria in 2014.
Come and participate. Bring yourself, a friend, an open mind, and a spirit of adventure.
