Anti-discrimination workshops

The University of Warsaw is constantly working to create a space where everyone will feel good and safe. One of the tasks carried out at the University of Warsaw is to show that it is possible - and necessary - to react to discrimination and violence. That is why all UW students are invited to participate in an anti-discrimination and anti-violence workshop carried out within the participatory budget of the University of Warsaw.

During the workshop, you will find out:

- What discrimination is,

- How the Polish law protects us against discrimination,

- What you can do if you have experienced violence or discrimination due to origin, nationality or skin colour,

- What you can do if you are a witness of violence or discrimination due to origin, nationality or skin colour,

- Where you can ask for support at the University of Warsaw and outside of it.

Workshops in Polish will take place on three dates to choose from: 20/11, 22/11, 27/11., 4:30PM-8:45PM.

Workshops in English will take place on three dates to choose from: 6/11, 15/11, 28/11, 4:30PM-8:45PM.

Workshops in Russian will take place on three dates to choose from: 07/11, 08/11, 14/11, 4:30PM-8:45PM.

Participation in the workshop is free of charge.

Location: University Volunteer Centre, Dobra Street 56/66 (the building of the University of Warsaw Library).
