1.Commemorative Lecture for the Enactment of the “Hokkaido University Declaration on the Promotion of Diversity and Inclusion”

Hokkaido University is planning to establish the “Hokkaido University Diversity and Inclusion Promotion Declaration” in order to promote understanding among members of the university of the philosophy of “diversity and inclusion,” which is essential for a university that “contributes to the resolution of global issues” as well as the foundation of human society from the perspective of respect for human rights, and to communicate the university’s commitment to the international community.
 
To commemorate this event, we will hold a series of lectures on gender, sexuality, multiethnicity, and universal design, which are important themes for promoting diversity and inclusion in universities.

It will be held in Japanese, but you can watch it with English subtitles later.
