Masterclass from Kirsten Mosey: Examining the Impacts of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion on Disarmament

The Emerging Voices Network (EVN) at BASIC is organising Expert Masterclasses. The EVN’s Senior Masterclasses are our opportunity to tap into the fantastic network of experts that BASIC is fortunate to have, to ask them to deliver their expertise to the EVN. The interactive masterclasses are both skills and content-based, facilitated by BASIC’s Inclusive International Security team. This is a primarily digital resource to make access to expertise more equitable for our global, diverse membership.

On Wednesday 8th March, Kirsten Mosey (she/her), Policy Officer with the Non-proliferation, Arms Control, and Disarmament department in Canada’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Global Affairs Canada), discussed ‘Examining the Impacts of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion on Disarmament’.    


This masterclass takes a critical look at the importance of an intersectional approach to disarmament, non-proliferation, and arms control. In doing so, it analyses successful attempts to integrate principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion into disarmament processes, the ongoing struggles of DEI work in disarmament, and how civil society and governmental actors alike can further mainstream DEI in our work. The class builds off of Kirsten’s work in ‘An Intersectional Guide to Disarmament’, and her experiences working for civil society, the United Nations, and government as an advocate for better, more equitable, inclusive, and diverse disarmament to usher in an era of peace and prosperity. Come prepared to challenge your assumptions, exercise your systemic thinking muscles, and have your passion for disarmament kept aflame.
