Fulbright Austria is looking at ways to turn talk about diversity into action. We have heard from representatives of Fulbright commissions and the Fulbright Program on the topic of diversity in light of recent events, but we believe that an essential part of this discussion needs to be amplified in public discourse: voices from within our community that represent the diverse perspectives and experiences of Fulbrighters on the ground.
Therefore, this summer, you are invited to Follow Fulbright Austria on Instagram as we feature the voices of the alum-led organizations in a series of takeovers leading up to a panel in September, where we will discuss diversity on a global scale in the context of the Fulbright Program. We feel that this is a unique opportunity to create more visibility for the alum-led organizations by including these voices and experiences in a wider conversation on diversity within the Fulbright Program. We hope you will join us in listening, learning, and amplifying the voices within our community as we strive to create a more inclusive, supportive, and safe program environment.
Please be sure to follow the takeovers on our Instagram account, and check back in our Events section to get more information about our upcoming diversity panel and how to register to attend this virtual event.
