Council for Diversity and Inclusion
Council for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) was established in 2014. The Council is formed to ensure a better gender balance in both academic and administrative leadership, but also in a wider sense in ensuring equal opportunities for staff and students. The Council has a 4 years mandate.
Tasks of the CDI
The Council works with the strategic development and mainstreaming of diversity and inclusion at CBS, makes recommendations to CBS management and conducts critical inquiry into matters of diversity and inclusion across CBS. The Council monitors initiatives to strengthen diversity and inclusion at CBS and engages CBS broadly in dialogue and debate about diversity and inclusion. The scope of CDI covers all diversity and inclusion issues in the areas of research, education and administration at CBS.
The overall focus is: More women in top research and management and talent development. Further CDI has decided to expand enquiries and data gathering into the education and programme areas of CBS.
