What does 

Facilitate Diversity 

mean exactly?

We create idea spaces where practitioners and academics meet and exchange ideas. To make these spaces as accessible as possible, we use a variety of event formats on and offline. Some events are more formal than others, but always driven by the mission to invite as many perspectives as possible. This is how we strive to promote our mission of diversity.
