With this new conversation series, we want to ‘open diversity’ by building bridges across scholarly perspectives and voices, and welcome critical or polemical takes. The first ‘conversation’ features two panels of CBS researchers from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and whose work connects in various ways to the concepts of diversity and difference. 

Please reach out to us if you are interested to be a speaker next time. 

13:00-14.20 Panel 1
Tor Hernes: Recognising past differences in the present as a platform for the future
Lotte Holck: Benevolent discrimination
Anker Brink Lund: Reflexions “Getting to Denmark”- homogeneity, diversity, and governance.
Florence Villesèche: A critical reflection on feminism as a leaderless movement

14.20-14.40 Coffee, tea, bubbles and a diversity of cakes 

14.40-16.00 Panel 2
Lasse Folke Henriksen: Homophily and sorting - barriers to organisational diversity
Ana Maria Munar: Gender and Truth
Mads Mordhorst: Why does identity emerge as an issue today? A historical perspective
Anne-Marie Søderberg: Studying and practicing (virtual) global collaboration within an international and interdisciplinary research team

We look forward to seing you!
Ana and Florence (organizers and moderators)
