Workshop 2 – Academia: Involving the international academic community in LGBT workplace emancipation

| March 12, 2014

Led by Leiden University. Often sitting on the fence between the private and public sectors, the academic community is in a world of its own. But does this isolate it from LGBT workplace progress for LGBT students, faculty and staff? Most Dutch universities host departments, institutes or programs dedicated to the research and teaching of gender and sexuality. To what extent is this expertise helpful in building an inclusive academic community, and to what extent could it play a role in promoting LGBT workplace emancipation elsewhere? What is the relation between different forms of research and effective policies? What does a comparison with international universities teach us about the potential of academic research for LGBT workplace issues?

Moderator: Isabel Hoving, Diversity Officer Leiden University; Associate Professor, Coordinator Minor Gender and Sexuality.
