We are an association for people of all genders and all sexual orientations who identify themselves as Person of Color (PoC). PoC is a self-designation for people who are exposed to any form of racism because of ethnic ascriptions.

Our goal is to create a safer space that enables the exchange between PoC. The idea behind safer space is to create an inclusive environment, free from discriminatory expressions and actions.

We also want to create a space in which projects that pursue the interests of PoC in Switzerland or serve to raise awareness of diversity issues in organizations and institutions can be conceived.

Our first own project are anti-racist workshops for teachers.

Workshop: “Taking action against racism: Diversum – Workshop for young people”

This is an anti-racist workshop for teenagers between 12 and 15 years.

Have you been thinking about that George Floyd video?
Do you want to understand how the Black Lives Matter movement came about?
Do you observe situations in which people are treated unfairly?

In this workshop, you will learn what racism is. Together, we think about how we can fight against it and how you can get support. You will also get to know other young people who want to join you in taking action against racism.

We are looking forward to see you!
The workshop lasts 2h and can be held for 5 – 12 people. Registrations by email to kontakt@verein-diversum.ch.
