On 3 October, the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion team, together with you, will kick off the development of a new sign that turns the University of Twente letters into Diversity of Twente. Last year, heavy winds irreparably damaged the sign we used for this purpose. The Responsible Futuring Crew at DesignLab is taking on this project and will be initiating and guiding its early development stages. How do we create a sign that aligns with our goals and our vision of a just, equitable, and inclusive future? A future where, just like now, but increasingly or in a more effective way, we continue to recognise that everyone is unique and that our campus is a place where everyone wants to live, learn, and work safely – both as individuals and as part of a community. Where everyone feels like they belong, in a way that's comfortable for you and for the people – and the world – around you.
This creative and inspiring session will take place in DesignLab, room INSPIRE, from 10.00 to 12.00 (walk-in from 9.30).
