"Since it’s never too late to learn, we at Cursor always make time for a good course. This time, Cursor joins the Power of Words workshop offered by TINT on Tuesday night in a lecture hall in MetaForum. Kimberly Drabbels, the organization’s program manager wants to explore with us the fine line between hate speech and freedom of speech and also has an exercise in non-violent communication planned for us. Perfect timing."
"She introduced the term sletvrees or "fear of being thought a slut" into the Dutch language and in her documentaries she confronts us with uncomfortable truths about racism and sexism. Her autobiographical book Mijn nazi-opa ("My Nazi Granddad") has recently been published. On Tuesday evening, program-maker, author and activist Bergman was a guest at TU/e. With an international audience she discussed the prejudices we all have, whether we know it or not."
"Expensive groceries, sky-high energy bills, interest payments on your student loan… the average student has a string of bad breaks to worry about. And so, together with investment association B&R Beurs, TINT is holding a Financial Well-being workshop, full of tips to help you sleep at night. No more lying awake thinking about your bank balance."
"On Valentine's Day, TU/e staff and students came together for dinner, discussions and drinks to celebrate the International Day of Women in Science. The organizers - TINT, WISE and Beyond - named the event ‘Intercultural STEM! But how?’ and asked participants the question: how inclusive are the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics for internationals?"
"I will always try to participate in these events since they create such an inviting and cozy atmosphere that you can’t help but dive deep into yourself, and this is hard to find elsewhere." Read Geri Fodor's first experience in the How To Build Your Social Life workshop!
