InDiE (Inclusion, Diversity & Equality) Initiative

I am one of the faculty advisors of the Global Health Program InDiE (Inclusion, Diversity & Equality) Initiative of the NTU College of Public Health. 

InDiE aims to eventually promote awareness in all policies and the various aspects of university life. At the InDiE’s first stage, we hope to support student-led activities and promote collaborations between GHP and non-GHP students. Thus, we invite proposals for funded events/activities, including but not limited to:

Participating in and/or promoting local activism events;

  1. Health justice-related seminars;

  2. Photo exhibitions and/or photo essay competitions;

  3. NTU-GHP and/or CPH blog sites;

  4. Student-run online magazine and/or symposiums;

  5. Holidays-related cultural events;

  6. Students’ rights and workers’ rights campaigns;

  7. GHP’s social media visibility (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.);

  8. Postgraduate conferences on global health-related issues;

  9. Mental health awareness, literacy, and promotion events;

  10. Inter-cohort WiP (work-in-progress) forums and/or roundtables.
