Great news, Thesislinkers… next week is Diversity Week at AUT!
Every year, Diversity Week celebrates the great variety of students and staff at AUT. It’s about acknowledging and accepting people of all ethnicities, abilities, ages, faiths, sexual orientations and identities.
This year’s theme is “Celebrate Diversity in Action: Awareness through Involvement.” Involvement is key – this event is all about participation, and there are dozens of events to take part in.
You can learn sign language, witness Japanese Taiko drumming, do yoga, visit a Global Village, discuss friendship between faiths, watch the legendary mixed ability dancers of the Touch Compass Dance Company, play sports, or even attend a movie marathon. Find the full programme here:
The team behind Diversity Week asked a couple of postgraduate students what diversity means to them. Here’s what they had to say.
Here at Thesislink we will be celebrating Diversity Week by posting every day on diversity issues in a research context. Stay tuned for lots of discussion on what diversity means, plus tips on how to ensure that your research is inclusive and respectful.
