LGBTQIA+ in higher education

How are issues related to LGBTQAI+ integrated in professional training at higher education institutions in Sweden?
Karolinska Institutet will host a seminar/panel discussion on systematically integrating LGBTQAI+ perspectives in the curricula of higher education. This reflects an understanding that LGBTQAI+ related competencies are part of quality education.
The panel participants, made up of experts, university teachers as well as students, will discuss the following issues before opening up for questions from the audience:
• How are LGBTQAI+ issues currently taught and understood at universities?
• Is there a gap between what students expect and what the education actually delivers?
• What are plans to develop further integration of such issues?
• Are there any gaps in training of teaching staff?
