The diversity organization envisions an open, inclusive, unbiased environment, where students, employees and faculty thrive and achieve their highest potential. With respect and tolerance, we learn from each other and leverage the great potential that lies in the heterogeneity of personal, educational and professional backgrounds.
The mission of Diversity @ ITET is to be a diverse and inclusive scientific community, where we fully support responsible leadership and personal development from all parties. We, professors, staff, and students strive to express respect towards each other, and to listen openly to different viewpoints, opinions, thoughts, and ideas. We strive to embrace a culture of tolerance and inclusion, where we appreciate the other. We are open-minded and curious to learn from individuals and groups. By this, we aim at creating a space where people feel emotionally, physically and intellectually safe and where difficulties are acknowledged and openly addressed.
Our objective is to foster personal development, help with career planning, strengthen professional networks and create a supportive community. We facilitate this by organizing:
