Workshop “Discrimination in Education & Being an Active Bystander”
In May we were contacted by students from Minorities and Multilingualism at the University of Groningen to conduct a workshop on Discrimination in Education & Being an Active Bystander. In the session we worked on building an understanding of structural and systemic discrimination in higher education and dove into what being an ally is, especially in situations of discrimination, and how to be an active bystander in the classroom and beyond.

The Fundraiser Pub-Quiz Event
In May SCDAI hosted the first offline event since the pandemic started. The Fundraiser Pub-Quiz Event aimed at raising money so that SCDAI can become an officially registered organization.
The event was a great success and thanks to our fantastic community we will now be able to get the registration process going.

In this online event, we will delve into how white supremacy culture purposefully prevents people from practicing sustainable antiracism.
We will also be talking about how to make anti-racism sustainable in Higher Education Institutions (HEI). There is a great need for removal of unequitable systemic barriers that limit and prohibit underrepresented groups from being included in learning environments. Focusing on actions that help students feel included within these environments will directly reflect on the inclusivity within HEI. To help students succeed there needs to be actions that are focused on their development in terms of their wellbeing. Acknowledging and assessing the barriers that limit BIPOC students from being truly included in these spaces is the first step towards creating sustainable anti-racist policies and practices in HEI.
SCDAI Ramadan event
On the 27th of March we want to bring people together in an event dedicated to Ramadan for those who are still unfamiliar with it, and bring them closer to it!
We will tackle what Ramadan is all about, what are the common misconceptions about it, personal stories, the meaning of fasting, as well as celebrating Ramadan at university and in the classroom.
Students, teachers, you are all welcome to join us! To do so, please sign up here:
