What can organisations do to enhance the diversity, including the position of women and other under-represented groups, in their organization? How do we combat the discrimination and devaluation of minority groups? The Gender and Diversity Hub of Utrecht University joins forces with societal partners to solve complex gender and diversity issues, as well as to develop strategies for implementing diversity in order to achieve societal inclusion and change. The Gender and Diversity Hub is part of research expertise area Institutions for Open Societies.

Why is inclusion important?

Research has demonstrated that building a society that is inclusive for all genders, ethnicities and other group dimensions alike, is crucial from a fundamental rights and individual fairness perspective, from a societal perspective and an economic perspective.
