FAMU ETHICAL vol. 2 - November 4th
Dear Students, dear Members of the Academic Community,
You are cordially invited to the second meeting as part of our FAMU ETICKY/FAMU ETHICAL workshop, which will focus on the topics of diversity and preventing discrimination. The event will be held in Room U1 on Friday, 4 November 2022 from 10:00 am. Ms Klára Čmolíková Cozlová will be our guide.
Together, we will discuss everything that the term ‘diversity’ can cover. We will speak about how we are open to variety and diversity here at FAMU and how we want to foster our own openness and understanding for others. We will ponder preventing discrimination and the existing tools that we can rely on (antidiscrimination laws). In a theoretical introduction, we will learn about the employer’s (school’s) responsibility for creating an accommodating environment for everyone. We will also discuss specific individual needs and the possibility for accommodating them as part of gender-sensitive HR work. After all, this is all about setting up a safe environment and care for both the employees and students of FAMU.
We will try to voice the principles to be enshrined in the newly prepared FAMU Code of Ethics, which is intended to serve as a guide for specific situations that may occur.
Do not miss the opportunity! Everyone across the Faculty community is invited.
