New Scientist special ‘Diversity Matters’

29 May 2019

The scientific journal the New Scientist provides attention to UG’s anniversary 'All Inclusive' with a special edition called ‘Diversity Matters’. That magazine is part of the University's efforts to offers insights into the importance of inclusion. In the issue, researchers aim to disentangle the concepts of inclusion and diversity and reflect on their meaning for society today.

The special issue includes an interview with American Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw, who is trying to change our framework of thinking through ‘intersectionality’. Also, Linda Duits tells why still a few professors are women, as well as cultural psychologist Glenn Adams provides tips what we can do to combat racism.

If you’re interested in reading the special edition, the entire publication is available via ISSUU.
