In 2022 diversity is our daily bread. Society members are different from each other. Their ages are different, they have different educational backgrounds, their mother tongues differ. Diversity enriches our societies.
D&I work’s target is that all members of a diverse society are accepted and have the feeling of belonging. Through inclusion we utilize different views and turn diversity into our advantage.
YUFE D&I Help Desk by University of Eastern Finland offers an opportunity to ask questions related to diversity and inclusivity. Questions are submitted with an electronic form and answered by university students with the help of their supervisors. You can choose whether you would like to receive the answer by email or prefer to see the answer published anonymously at this website. Questions are answered in the order of arrival. We do not reply to racist or insulting questions.
Diversity means embracing and considering the differences between individuals and groups of people.
Inclusivity is the practice or policy of including people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized.
