APH Story: Big steps forward for diversity in care and research

APH researcher Petra Verdonk, associate professor of Ethics, Law and Humanities, works on several studies where diversity and intersectionality are at the core.

Diversity and inclusion are a high priority in more and more organizations. This is also considered increasingly important in healthcare, education and research at Amsterdam UMC and the Vrije Universiteit (VU).

What is intersectionality and how do you apply this in research?
Intersectionality is an up-and-coming approach to study health inequalities among social groups.

A two-day, entry-level training course offers participants an introduction in intersectional thinking and doing. For more information about training Intersectionality & I (3ECTs).
