CBS Diversity Day 2017

Between 24-30 April, CBS and other knowledge institutions across the country invite you and your friends to participate in the Science Festival and events that make research relevant to your everyday life.   

No more shame about stress
Shame (SKAM) is the title of a much-praised contemporary Norwegian series about adolescents that describes the emotional nooks and crannies of being a high school student.  Feelings of shame also play an important role at the workplace - when people experience a lack of well-being and are hit by stress. This is demonstrated in the PhD thesis by Pernille Steen Pedersen from the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy, CBS.
Listen to her lecture about how to understand different stress-related patterns of reaction and how to get better at handling workplace stress.

Put your prejudice to the test
How prejudiced are you? And can your prejudice be challenged in one day? These questions will serve as a basis for a social experiment, which takes place at CBS during the Science Festival. In the course of a whole day, the participants will experience performances and lectures centred on the theme of diversity. The theatre organisation C:NTACT, comedian Ellie Jokar known from the Danish satirical show about young female immigrants "Det slører stadig (a play on words that refers to veiled women)" will perform during the day and researchers in power structures will present results of their research in the homogeneity of the Danish power elite. Throughout the day, participants will be tested by means of clickers to see if the day has challenged their positions.
