Personal note:

In my presentations on the topic of diversity and inclusion, I explore this crucial subject from various perspectives:

As a so-called "Third-Culture Kid," I am a living example of the fusion of different cultural influences. With roots in Serbia, a childhood in Germany, and international work experience in Singapore, I embody the global mobility and diversity. My personal story enables me to understand firsthand the challenges and opportunities that come with this increasing diversity.

Therefore, my presentations revolve around the following key aspects:

The challenges in a globalized world where diversity is constantly growing: I discuss the difficulties that arise when people have to navigate different cultures and environments. I delve into the social, cultural, and personal challenges associated with this diversity.

The wonderful possibilities of diversity: In addition to the challenges, I highlight the positive aspects of diversity. I show how different perspectives and backgrounds can generate new solutions and ideas.

An honest examination of difficulties: I encourage acknowledging and addressing the existing difficulties related to diversity and inclusion. This includes confronting prejudices, discrimination, and inequality.

Impulses for bridging the gap between utopia and reality: In my presentations, I offer inspiring approaches and solutions that can help bridge the divide between the ideal vision of diversity and inclusion and its practical implementation.

With my personal background and my passion for the subject of diversity and inclusion, I provide a unique and enriching perspective experience that encourages reflection on the importance and implementation of diversity in our globalized world.

Bio:

With over 13 years of expertise in marketing, project management, and event coordination, I have a wealth of experience acquired through working in both Europe and Asia.

Currently based in Munich, I operate as a freelance marketing and project manager, leveraging my skills to deliver successful outcomes for diverse clients and projects.

Outside of my professional endeavors, my interests span a wide range of topics, including languages, fashion illustration, literature, and sports. These passions not only enrich my life but also provide me with a unique perspective and a well-rounded approach to my work.

What does “home” mean when we live in a place that’s culturally different from where our parents originated? And what impact does it have on our lives?

Tatjana’s talk is inspired by the social phenomenon of cross-cultural kids – children who have lived and interacted with two or more cultural environments during the first 18 years of life. She notes the unique joys and challenges of transitioning between cultures, pairing this with her own upbringing as a Serbian being born and raised in Germany.

What are the challenges in an increasingly mobile world where diversity is getting bigger and bigger? And might we need to rethink our perception of “where home is”? This is what Tatjana set out to explore in her talk.
