Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The ABC Department strives to promote Equal Opportunities, Diversity and Multiculturalism at all levels and in all activities.


DABC promotes mutual respect in research and design activities, regardless of the participants’ origin, education, religion, physical abilities, gender or sexual orientation.

The Department educates individuals in designing spaces, technologies and materials that are inclusive of diversity and accessible to all, with a special emphasis on addressing physical, environmental, and social vulnerabilities.
