Welcome to a workshop on diversity organized by WASP Diversity and Inclusion Group (DIG). The workshop is for everyone within the WASP Community. It will be a hybrid event and you can choose to participate onsite at Örebro University (Room T141) or online.
What does diversity mean to you? How can WASP benefit from attracting researchers from diverse backgrounds and perspectives?
