    This interactive workshop, is designed to help you explore the meaning and importance of diversity at CERN.
    Using participative multi-media methods and case studies from the CERN work environment, the participants are provided with insights into the different dimensions of diversity which help develop greater sensitivity to differences.

    At this workshop, we explore ways to recognise and overcome biases and thereby strengthen our tradition of inclusiveness at CERN.

    Please note that morning-only participation is possible; afternoon-only participation is possible if you have already participated in the Diversity in Action workshop.
