Diversity Month

On May 28, we celebrate the German Diversity Day, which was initiated by the Charta der Vielfalt.

Leading up to this day and on the day itself, the HSRM Diversity Team is offering several informational events and workshops. The objective is to raise awareness and understanding of different aspects of diversity.

Together we aim to create a community characterized by respect for and sensitivity to  diversity.

Join us in celebrating our diversity as we continue our journey to become a university where our increasingly diverse body of students and employees feels at home.


Program Overview

In celebration of Diversity Month, the Diversity Team will publish a calendar and provide you with daily inspirational insights on diversity throughout May. We hope you'll discover new perspectives, find inspiration, and that these insights will prompt discussions and reflections.

The inspiration calendar will be available for download here by the end of April. You can already pre-order a printed version (DinA5 folding card) here.

Online-Training: „Understanding Antisemitism: Analysis of Current Debates and Narratives in the Context of the Israel-Palestine Conflict“

Due to the terrorist attacks on Israel and the subsequent war in Gaza, many people feel the need for context and exchange. The online training aims to provide background knowledge on dealing with antisemitism and racism - in order to constructively address both the current Middle East conflict and the social challenges associated with it.

The online training consists of two phases: Prior to the online workshop, in May, you will receive weekly videos (approximately 40 minutes each) for preparation, providing background information on the following topics:

  •  History and present of antisemitism from antiquity to today
  • Antisemitic aspects regarding Israel
  • Criticism and conspiracy narratives related to antisemitism.

The online workshop on May 27, 2024, from 12:30 to 15:30, builds on these contents and offers the opportunity to engage intensively with current manifestations of antisemitism as well as with antisemitic codes and images in current debates. Working with concrete examples, you will learn to recognize and appropriately classify antisemitic images and narratives: How do I recognize statements that contain an antisemitic core but may use a form of "circumlocutory communication," for example? What forms of reformulating traditional antisemitic narratives exist?

Speakers: Samuel Stern and Bijan Razavi, Anne Frank Educational Center
