Workshop “Decolonize us! – Entry into anti-discrimination and anti-racism work” on 30th April

In the workshop we would like to take a critical look at global and structural, social power structures, colonialities and their global establishment history from perspectives of the Global South. Participants will be taught the basics of anti-discrimination and anti-racism.

The program aims to equip students with tools to work in international and intercultural contexts. The specific goal of the workshop is to reflect on one's own learning processes while searching for one's own possibilities for action.

Speakers:
Altynai Noruzova, education officer at MeineWelt e.V.
Abdou-Rahime Diallo, political advisor at Diaspora Policy Institute

The reason why students from non-academic families are relatively underrepresented at German universities is not their lack of talent. Rather, there is a lack of role models in the family environment. Access to the necessary information is much more difficult for them. ArbeiterKind.de meets this challenge by providing comprehensive, diverse and easily accessible support for pupils, students and parents.
