SIETAR EUROPA: Extending the paradigm: From Diversity & Inclusion to Belonging & Wellbeing

January 19 @ 18:00 - 19:00 CET

Extending the paradigm: From Diversity & Inclusion to Belonging & Wellbeing

In my presentation I’ll first present what D&I means for us practitioners, educators or researchers around the world, and extend the paradigm. Starting from Diversity as a reality to actively co-create Inclusion, Belonging and, ultimately, Wellbeing to fully co-generate the best diverse, social and psychologically safe environment, where people can thrive and openly speak, question, act (and also make mistakes) and live a healthy life. To give a framework to this process, I’ve identified and will showcase 9 areas that need special attention when dealing with D&I. These 9 are: D.I.V.E.R.S.I.T.Y. Finally, I’ll make recommendations that can serve as a framework for reflection or guidelines for actions to develop best practices daily, if relevant related to post Covid-19 turbulent times.

Vincent Merk is a senior lecturer in Intercultural Management at Eindhoven University of Technology in NL and a trainer and consultant in intercultural communication and management. He currently focuses on issues of D&I along with the concepts of Belonging & Wellbeing. He regularly speaks at conferences in Europe and Asia and has attended all but 1 SEU congresses.
