Diversity, equality, and inclusion attract and retain talented people

We must break our prejudices and monoculture and see DE&I (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) as a critical focus area. So says DTU’s newly hired consultant responsible for the DE&I efforts at DTU. We talked to Deniz Atan about what diversity, equality, and inclusion mean and why DTU must be successful in this area.

Deniz Atan holds an MSc in Social Science—Political Communication and Management from Copenhagen Business School and most recently worked for the Danish Youth Council.

He was involved with youth research and inclusive communities in collaboration with the Centre for Youth Research at Aalborg University. This led him to take an interest in the university world and how DE&I plays a role in research environments.
