          * To serve as a one-stop shop on conference alerts, publications and activities all
          pertaining to diversity-related themes
          * Content publicly accessible for all those interested in diversity research and
          development in the region and internationally.
          * To include publications, related curriculum development and other initiatives on
          diversity including NGOs and thematic assistance.
          * The aim is to compile a database of past and current diversity-related research
          conducted at the University of Hong Kong and other local academic institutions in
          its initial phase. This initiative is due to be launched officially in March 2011 for
          the first-phase launch.

          research scholars around the world.
