Equal opportunities are fair opportunities

Pride festival

On Saturday May 30, Halmstad is holding its first ever Pride Festival. Halmstad University is taking part in the celebrations.

– It feels natural that the University should participate in Halmstad Pride since we stand for human rights, equal opportunities, and strive to be an inclusive university where everyone is welcome and met with respect, regardless of who one is. In our Vision Statement it says that we should contribute to creating values and developing society – this is one way of doing that, says Suzanne A Mason, Coordinator for Equal Opportunities and Diversity at Halmstad University.

The University will have a tent together with the Student Union in Picassoparken during the day and partake in the parade in the afternoon. Students and staff are invited to join the parade under the University banner. We will assemble in Stationsparken at 14.00 and the parade starts at 15.00.
No registration is necessary, just come along! To show that there is a Halmstad University group, we are handing out rainbow t-shirts with the University logo at our tent in Picassoparken from 10.00 on May 30. First come first served – we have 100 t-shirts.

…and inspirational talk (in Swedish)

On May 27, you are invited to listen to Sara Lund/Claes Schmidt talk about the norms and values that govern our lives and prevent us from thinking logically. Claes Schmidt became nationally known as Sara Lund when he “came out” as a transvestite in 2003. The talk is a mixture of humour and seriousness, fact and fiction, inspiration and experience with the express aim of updating and broadening our way of thinking. And to have the courage to reflect on ourselves and others – without judging.

The talk is free of charge, no registration necessary, and is held at 13–15 at Nolltrefem and at 18–20 in Klarasalen at the City Library. The event is a collaboration between the City library, Nolltrefem and Halmstad University.
