Non-westernCarolien, Joost Kok (Leiden Institute for Advanced Computer Science (LIACS)) and Nadia Mansouri (POPcorner) organised a lunch for non-Western PhD students. Cultural diversity enhances group dynamics and creativity, but integration into another society is not always easy. To make our two new PhD students, Yaser from Iran and Naqi from Malaysia, feel at home, Carolien wanted them to meet others with a non-Western background. The lunch was a great opportunity to get to know each other and share valuable insights and information.
