USI without stereotypes 2024


Institutional Communication Service

12 April 2024

To mark Sexual Harassment Awareness Day 2024, the exhibition "USI without Stereotypes" will be on display in the corridors of the West Campus Lugano Red Building from Thursday, 25 April, to 17 May 2024.

The exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Equal Opportunities Service and USI Institutional Communication Service, aiming to reflect on and expand our perceptions of stereotypes and the role they play regarding behaviour that can violate a person's integrity. The exhibition involved USI's administrative staff and academic and intermediate bodies and highlights recurring expressions and clichés that give a wrong perception of our abilities and risk influencing our behaviour, life and professional choices.

Available for viewing from Thursday, 25 April to Friday, 17 May 2024, during the building's opening hours, the exhibition promises to be a pivotal event in promoting awareness and stimulating discussion around the important topic of sexual harassment and any inappropriate behaviour that may harm a person's integrity.

We therefore invite you to join us in this critical reflection and dialogue, exploring the themes of respect, equality and non-discrimination.
