Diversity Talks is a series of free events that provides an open space to discuss and better understand diversity and inclusion. We will explore aspects of diversity within the context of science, technology and education as well as the work we do here as students, staff and management.
This series of events are made possible by Studium Generale, DEWIS (Delft Women in Science), True-U (LGBT-network), TU Delft Diversity & Inclusion Office, X TU Delft and the TU Delft Feminists.

Every second Tuesday of the month TU Delft Feminists will meet to eat and drink together, to bring whatever we like to discuss to the table, to keep up with ongoing actions and to find and support one another. Sometimes we meet at a TU Delft-space, sometimes in a café somewhere in Delft.
December session: the last get-together of 2018 will take place on the 15th of December at Tierney’s Irish Pub – Kromstraat 29, Delft, from 19:00 until 22:00 (or later).
All bodies and (non)genders are welcome! Please let us know if there is anything you’d like to discuss and we can add it to the agenda.
If you are interested to learn more and discuss the topic of feminism with fellow students/colleagues, the book club is for you!
Books we have read so far:
– Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay
– Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
– White Innocence by Gloria Wekker
– Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde
– Gender Trouble by Judith Butler
– A room for one’s own by Virginia Woolf
We’re created an open group at goodreads, so you here you can find more info on the book of the moment!
This book club was created to provide a platform for sharing and discussing books, and for planning offline meetings. Feel free to start a discussion and to add more relevant books to the group bookshelf. We are also looking for people who would like to take initiative for a bookclub-meeting, contact us or create an open call on facebook.
