About Academic Pride
Academic Pride is a collaboration around Stockholm Pride between several of Stockholm's higher education institutions and associated student unions. The purpose is to make visible the importance of LGBTQIA + issues in higher education institutions, both in terms of research and teaching and in terms of inclusive work and study environments.
Academic Pride 2023 is organized by Stockholm University, Karolinska Institutet, the Stockholm School of Economics, the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Södertörn University together with the various universities' student unions.
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 ideas 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 on LGBTQI issues.
- Use language that is inclusive of LGBTQI people, ask open-ended questions, and promote transparency.
- Reflect on the norms that influence you and the assumptions you make about gender and sexuality.
