"Embrace diversity"

Ozan Ozavci is Assistant Professor of History at the faculty of Humanities. 

“Diversity is a quality. It’s an advantage to make use of; to learn from each other and to see the world through each others eyes as much as possible.”

“Inclusion is the process leading towards diversity. It is creating an environment where everyone feel at home, regardless of their gender, origins or disabilities.”

“There’s a lively debate about diversity at the moment and I truly appreciate that. But there is one thing I don’t feel comfortable with: the nature of the dialogue. There is so much negativity when we talk about diversity. That is counterproductive, because diversity should not be a war to be fought, but a unity to be embraced and celebrated.”
