One such activity is diversity training. Training sessions provide direct support to create awareness and to develop skills necessary for actually realising an inclusive learning and working environment. The D&I Expertise Office collaborates with external trainers in offering training on implicit bias, inclusive pedagogy, the curriculum and racism, among others. This research internship will consist of a close-up research at one or more institutesat Leiden University which examines what it means to work towards an inclusive learning and working environment is. What happens in a training? And how do staff members implement what they learned in atraining?
The exact topic of this research will be determined together with the D&I Expertise Office.
