WISE Learners in Vienna

July 9-11, 2014

When diversity meets innovation – Learners present their ideas at the Common Ground Conference in Vienna
Interdisciplinary thinking, global conversations, and cross-institutional intellectual collaboration – these are the core ideas behind the 14thInternational Common Ground Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities and Nations , taking place in Vienna, Austria from 9 to 11 of July.
Four Learners, Evanne Nowak (The Netherlands), Maeve Dunne (Ireland), Nikhil D'Souza (India) and Muetaz Hamed (Yemen) will be taking part in the conference to present the projects they have been working on within the year-long Executive Education Program.
This is the second time this year that the Learners have been given the opportunity to introduce their concepts to a large international audience, all of the offered solutions addressing a pressing educational issue.
The conference, organized by Common Ground Publishing, aims at creating a privileged interdisciplinary meeting space for a diverse and creative knowledge community around the following topics: Identity and Belonging, Organizational Diversity, Education and Learning in a World of Differences, and Community Diversity and Governance.
