A First !

Another 'community' outing. This is the first conference hosted by UNILAG that has or allows subject around sexuality. So, it will be great for the community too. Especially that session, which TIERs is hosting. Many members of the academia will be presenting papers around the subject. Read details below

The Initiative for Equal Rights is proud to partner with and invite you to the first ever conference on Diversity, Inclusivity and Equality in Nigeria, organized by the University of Lagos. The conference, which is free to register for and attend will be held at the UNILAG main campus in Akoka.

The two-day conference will bring together academics, policymakers and social activists to share knowledge on broadening inclusion and diversity within education and more broadly, in Nigeria. The conference is taking place from the 12th – 13th September, at the prestigious Afe Babalola Hall, University of Lagos, Akoka.

The conference is based on the broad concept of inclusion in the context of commitment to education for all and equitable access to healthcare irrespective of disability, gender, socio-economic class, sexuality or factors that reinforce marginalization, with a view to influencing Nigeria’s attainment of five of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. The conference will present new knowledge from across various academic disciplines within Nigeria, as well as presentations from civil society organizations, and business.

As part of the conference, TIERs will be hosting a breakout session addressing issues of minorities and the Social Environment, chair by Arit Okpo, (Host, Untold Facts). The session will present new research on attitudes to sexual minorities, as well as new research on the experiences of sexual minorities in Nigeria from a variety of practitioners across academic as well as policy institutions. The session will be followed by a roundtable discussion chaired by Arit Okpo. The panel discussion will aim to draw out a conversation around the impact of discrimination on sexual minorities and the wider society, and consider what needs to be achieved to widen acceptance of sexual minorities in Nigeria in the context of broadening knowledge and understanding.
