We were pleased to host a panel discussion on “Excellence, Identity, and Inclusion: The Experiences of Diverse Scholars in Germany” on September 6th in Berlin.

The panels brought together international and multi-disciplinary perspectives to the issues of identity, empowerment, and scholarship as well as to questions of equity, access, and success in a professional context. Our distinguished group of experts addressed important questions such as: What are the trends of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) globally? What are the main challenges and opportunities for diverse scholars working and studying in Germany? What are the long-term consequences if we ignore DEI?
