Online workshop "Communication training against hate speech - Focus on students"


Within its event series "University in Transition - Perspectives on Gender and Diversity", IGaD is setting an additional focus in 2021: Anti-Discrimination in Focus.


Hate speech is an aspect of discrimination and can be heard or seen not only on the internet or social media, but increasingly also in everyday university life. IGaD had therefore organized a theme evening "Hate Speech in Everyday University Life - On Dealing with Aggressive Reactions" with Ingrid Brodnig on October 8, 2020.

Following up on the discussion of the participants at that time, a communication training against hate speech for teachers and professors took place on May 6, 2021. This will be followed on June 24, 2021 by a communication training course aimed specifically at students.
