Flyer for the event

What is behind buzzwords such as gender budgeting and diversity management? What ideas and goals underlie these two concepts? What can a gender-specific budget analysis achieve and what concrete steps can follow? Can diversity management as a business strategy really help to reduce discrimination and promote equality? Or are social inequalities concealed by a mere rhetoric of diversity? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both strategies?
