The diversity research initiative was founded as a cooperative project by the Essen College of Gender Research, the Chair of Postcolonial Studies and the Vice-Rectorate for Diversity Management. The initiative aims at identifying research priorities and laying the foundation for potential joint projects.

The initiative's goal of enabling interdisciplinary networking with regard to joint research projects was pursued from 2011 to 2015 through a series of projects and events documented on these pages.
