The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment is changing. Women empowerment, globalization, European integration, the emergence of economies in the Global South, and many other cultural and economic trends mean that our faculty is more diverse than ever. In many ways, we are at the forefront of diversity. But in some areas, we lag behind. Diversity is a big opportunity, but it also comes with a few challenges. It means we need to learn how to work, teach and interact with people who are very different from us. Cultural and other differences mean that we have a valuable multiplicity of worldviews, but it also means that people are sensitive to different things. TU Delft is taking diversity seriously and has a plan. We want to hear from you about what the challenges and opportunities are and find out how we can make our faculty even more inclusive and welcoming to you. In order to discuss these ideas, the Department of Urbanism promoted a workshop on diversity on July 3, 2018. This is a report of the ideas shared during the workshop
