Diversity in Action | Interactive Workshop | 4 July

Come and take part in an interactive workshop organised by the CERN Diversity Programme designed to creatively explore the meaning of diversity and share your experience of working with differences at CERN.


Thursday 4 July 2013 – 1.30 p.m. - 5.30 p.m.
Pump Hall - Building 216-R-401

"Diversity in Action" is an interactive half-day workshop designed to creatively explore the meaning and importance of diversity at CERN, in support of the Organization’s value of “appreciating differences, fostering equality and promoting collaboration”. Using participative multi-media methods, this innovative workshop will provide participants with insights into diversity, help them to develop greater sensitivity to differences, explore ways to recognise and overcome biases and thereby strengthen our tradition of inclusiveness at CERN.

Alan Richter, Ph. D., is the president of QED Consulting, a 25-year-old company based in New York. He has consulted to organisations for many years in multiple capacities, primarily in the areas of leadership, values, culture and change. He has worked closely with many leading organisations worldwide in both private and public sectors, with extensive experience in Africa, Asia and Europe, in addition to the Americas. He holds an M.A. and a B.A.B.Sc. from the University of Cape Town, and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Birkbeck College, London University.

Everyone working on the CERN site is welcome!

This session will be run in English; a French session is planned for the autumn.
