TIDE, Tilburg University Network for Inclusion, Diversity & Equality
Tilburg University is undertaking a series of measures to achieve a more balanced and diverse workforce. An excellent bottom-up initiative to enhance this process is TIDE, the Tilburg University Network for Inclusion, Diversity & Equality. TiU’s Executive Board has festively launched the network.
TIDE offers academic and support staff opportunities to meet and exchange knowledge, experience, and contacts. The network aims to have a positive influence on equality, diversity and inclusion policies and practices at Tilburg University. In particular, we strive for an inclusive organization culture. We do this by organizing meetings where we address themes that relate to internationalization, career stages, confidence, mentoring, dealing with conflict, prioritizing, visibility, work-life balance, strategic thinking, etc. The substantial component is followed by an informal lunch.
What roles does the network wish to fulfill?
- A place to exchange successful strategies, expertise, and experiences
- A visible and accessible platform where faculty can come to with questions and suggestions
- A signaling function that serves as input for new policies
We invite both academic and support staff, for we need influencers and decision makers in both the Departments and Divisions to bring about cultural change towards more (gender) equality, diversity, and inclusion. Colleagues with diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and fellow lgbt workers are also welcome to become members.
