Through hashtags such as #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter, #MusicMeToo social shortcomings have been getting more visibility in media in recent years. Actions of discrimination have been scrutinized more thoroughly and people affected by it have been getting more public support. Topics of anti-discrimination, mental health and a lack of diversity, equity and inclusion have been given more attention and significance. We are in the midst of a social climate change. How can we improve this situation? Together with Rijksuniversiteit Groningen we'll present the first outline of a pan-European research to get an insight in where the problems lie.
