The concept of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) has permeated every facet of our society, aiming to achieve the SDGs and advance Society 5.0.
In recent times, we've witnessed the emergence of numerous new initiatives and studies aimed at addressing the challenges faced by minorities, and their impact is extending beyond specific minority groups. This session will delve into such topics.

This session consists of two parts. In Part 1, we will discuss the impact of DE&I on innovation by inviting professionals and researchers who are at the forefront of addressing these social challenges. Additionally, we will introduce the activities of the 'Bureau of Human Empowerment,' established at the University of Tsukuba as a DE&I center. Our aim is to share knowledge with the audience and provide participants with a new perspective on potential solutions.

Part 2 will feature an exhibition of posters and other works on the themes of 'minorities and innovation' by young researchers and graduate students. Through meaningful dialogues between the presenters and exhibition visitors, we aim to help all participants experience the reality and embodiment of the abstract perspectives and insights presented in Part 1. Additionally, we seek to facilitate the formation of networks among the participants.

We warmly welcome participation in Part 1 only.

ダイバーシティ&インクルージョン(Diversity and Inclusion)は、近年DE&I(Diversity, Equity and Inclusion)と概念を発展させながら、SDGsやSociety5.0の実現に向けた社会のさまざまな側面に浸透しつつあります。そのなかで、近年ではマイノリティが直面する困難を起点として生まれたさまざまな新しい取組や研究が、マイノリティを超えて社会のさまざまな人々にインパクトをもたらす事例も増え始めています。
