Herzliche Einladung zum digitalen "Diversity Talk" der Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien, 17.3.2021, 18 Uhr:

'WU matters. WU talks.' -diversity talk:

"I have nothing against foreigners, but..."
The two sides of being international
 "You know me, I've got nothing against foreigners. Some of my best friends are foreigners. But these particular foreigners aren't even from the village!" (Geriatrix, Asterix and Caesar's Gift)

Internationality has many faces, and it is widely regarded as a success factor in a globalized world. And yet, having an immigrant background is seen as a disadvantage. What does internationality mean for us personally, and for our everyday life at an international university? How do we deal with things that feel "foreign," and how do we define our own concept of what's "normal"? We'll be talking about opportunities, challenges, and (academic) freedom in a world where borders are becoming more and more open - or are they?
