Wellbeing at Work

 For whom : Students, Admininistrative and Academic Collaborators

The Wellbeing at Work (WaW) working group has been created in March 2023 at the Department of Geosciences of the University of Fribourg.

WaW is committed to the active promotion of diversity, equity and inclusion to prevent discrimination, harassment and conflict situations in the daily life of the University.

Who?  WaW is a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion working group composed of individuals (PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, staff, professors) having different backgrounds.

Why?  Every member of the University community has the right to be treated inclusively, respectfully, and equally, irrespective of their background and individual characteristics. It is time to join efforts at the University scale to preventively counteract boundary crossing behaviors and define a culture of respect.

How?  WaW aims to foster an environment that raise awareness and communicate on the themes of discrimination, harassment and conflict situations. The group meets twice a month to discuss themes, organize workshops and projects in order gather available information (see Resources below), stimulate discussion and exchange of ideas amongst all members of the University community.

Resources? The goal of WaW is to provide key reference documents and webpage links of contact and advice services. These include services from the University of Fribourg that provide all staff and students with professional support, but also from outside the University.


If you are interested in joining the WaW, please contact the President of Department
