NOTE: This is a website I ran from 2016 - 2019 whilst I was conducting my doctoral research with a focus on men's support for gender equality. The aim was to engage the public in conversation on topics related to gender equality, whilst aiming to close the academia - public gap.
I am currently working on a new website capturing the entire spectrum of my current consulting work, including projects on racial equality, LGBTG+ rights, people with disabilities, and general Diversity & Inclusion initiatives. Stay tuned!
My name is Antonia Sudkaemper, I am a Diversity & Inclusion Specialist. I completed my doctoral research with a specific focus on men's support for gender equality in 2019, and have been involved in numerous non-academic Diversity & Inclusion projects and roles throughout the past 5 years. I enjoy engaging others in conversations on these topics, and like to discuss strategies to achieve change. Ultimately, my goal is to make a contribution towards creating a society that provides equal opportunities to all of its members.
After completing high school in Germany in 2010, I acquired a BSc in Psychology (2013) and a Research MSc in Behavioural Sciences (2015) at the University of Groningen (NL). I was fortunate to do parts of my degrees at the University of Johannesburg (SA) and the University of Cambridge (UK), respectively. Thereafter, I conducted my doctorate research in Social and Organisational Psychology at the University of Exeter (UK).
Recently, I worked for the Equal Opportunities Office of the Council of the European Union. There, I was involved in projects fostering gender equality, work-life balance, and non-discrimination of minorities and people with disabilities.
Further, I was an Associate for Gender Equality at GenPol, a Cambridge-based think tank consultancy helping clients find gender aware-solutions to their problems.
I am always interested in side-projects on diversity-related topics. In 2017, I co-organised the GenSTEM conference, and advised the Wilberforce Society on a policy paper on gender equality, and was engaged in street activism. Since 2018, I have been a MayShad Magazine Ambassador. I am interested in discussing and supporting new projects - please do get in touch.
As of May 2019, I have been working full-time as a Diversity & Inclusion Specialist at Cambridge Assessment, an international education and assessment provider. . In this role, I have a dual focus and engage in both project management and research. For instance, I lead the project group "Inclusive Behaviour", develop an unconscious bias training for teachers, develop an equality strategy for our services and products, analyse gender pay gap data, conduct equality impact analyses, and conduct D&I research to improve our products and services.
To maintain a healthy work-life balance I like to move a lot: running, football, dancing, cycling, swimming, … One of the things that excites me the most in life though is exploring new places - one can never travel enough!
