SOGI Seminar – What does it mean to “accept diversity”? Creating a university where everyone can thrive and let their individuality shine through

2019-9-26 (Thu) 13:30 -


In July 2017, Osaka University established the “Osaka University Basic Policy Regarding Diversity in Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI)” and has been active in its endeavors in acknowledging diversity and rights regarding SOGI and eliminating prejudice and discrimination based on SOGI.

For this seminar, we’ll welcome Professor NAKATSUKA Mikiya (Dean, Graduate School of Health Sciences, Okayama University/Physician, Osaka University Gender Clinic/Chairman, Japanese Society of Gender Identity Disorder) to speak with us, after which students and students with special needs will also take the stage to talk about their own experiences regarding SOGI. Details about the seminar are listed below.

Let’s discuss sexual orientation and gender identity in order to make sure that campus life at Osaka University provides everyone with the opportunity to let their individuality shine through.
