About Academic Pride

Academic Pride is a network between several of Stockholm's higher education institutions and associated student unions. This year, in addition to KI, KTH, Stockholm University, Södertörn University and Stockholm School of Economics are also participating. The aim is to make visible the importance of LGBTQI+ issues at the universities, both in terms of research and teaching and in terms of inclusive work and study environments.

How to work in an LGBTQI-inclusive way

KI works to prevent discrimination and harassment of LGBTQI persons and others through the equal opportunity efforts, which focuses on an inclusive work and study environment through the entire scope of the Discrimination Act.

Here are three tips for working in an LGBTQI-inclusive way:

  • Increase your knowledge of what LGBTQI people face in their everyday life - there are several online training courses and research on LGBTQI issues.
  • Use language that is inclusive of LGBTQI people, ask open-ended questions, and promote openness.
  • Reflect on the norms that influence you and the assumptions you make about gender and sexuality.
