The workshop is designed for University communicators to help understand all of the inclusion goals and practical solutions can we suggest to close as many gaps in our campus life as possible. Participants will be guided by an example of the EUPRIO Mobility Project executed by Norway, Poland and Ukraine this year and they will learn how can communicators ensure equal opportunities and reduce inequalities by eliminating discriminatory laws, policies and traditions in practice. Also the question of how can our university jobs be relevant to deal with gender issues while internationalizing our campuses, empowering and promoting the social, economic and political inclusion, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status – will be addressed.
Workshop participants will be encouraged to follow a procedure to produce a toolbox for communicators to further disseminate knowledge about how various groups could be supported to achieve inclusion on campus and to strengthen their university capacities to enhance programs designed to integrate the disadvantaged students/staff including refugees into campus life.
Discussion of strengthening the resilience of women towards our university admission systems, based on STEM and suggestions to develop communication tools to combat all forms of discrimination against women entering universities and against the minorities in every sense – will be encouraged.
