5.2 Staff diversity

{the paragraph below is the same for all three programmes}

We set forth the earlier work on strengthening staff diversity. We were very fortunate that during the selection procedures so many excellent candidates from so many different places and backgrounds qualified.

The tables below present an overview of the gender and nationality distribution for the faculty of the section Public Administration, that are involved in teaching the programme.

Staff members are also actively involved in developing activities that contribute to DE&I by using internal resources available within the UT. In recent years, staff members have submitted applications for the UT Incentive Fund, a resource that supports activities promoting the diversity, equity and inclusion of students and employees at UT. Examples of accepted proposals include a project from Dr Long which developed an anti-racist training workshop series that helps participants recognize and address internalized racism. Another project from Dr. Bouzguenda’s aimed to organise a sports day initiative specifically aimed at supporting Muslim female students, to address withdrawal from practicing sports. Furthermore, staff members are also committed to supporting diversity through academic service within the UT community, such as serving as board members of the Female Faculty Network Twente)
