Do you want to promote equality at the School of Chemical Engineering? Sign up here to join the school's equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) group for the period 2023-2024.

The EDI group focuses on developing equality, diversity and inclusion.

The School of Chemical Engineering aims to offer everyone a work environment where students and employees are treated equally irrespective of gender, background or position. The EDI group supports this goal by, among other things, drawing up an annual EDI action plan and following up on its implementation. The group meets three to four times a year.

The aim is that the new group would involve a broad representation from different departments and personnel groups among academics and service units. Both newcomers and those previously involved in EDI operations are welcome to join. AYY appoints two student members to the group.

The size of the group is not predetermined, but it is possible that selections be made among those volunteering if there is a lot of interest.

Registration is open until the end of November and the group will be appointed in December.

Avatars and genuine interaction

Aalto University’s researchers are contributing to the creation of redesigned maternity and child health clinics and positive childbirth experiences in their research projects. The visions seize the potential of technology, such as childbirth simulation in a 3D-video conference using an avatar, a virtual character. On the other hand, the researchers would also like to hold on to the best practices from the past, such as the traditional child health clinic card, genuine human interaction and the rotina tradition, visits by family and close-ones to meet the newborn and bring foods as a gift.
