Fellow research pool SULSA, the Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance, presents this action-orientated event which will explore where inclusion and diversity in STEM can improve and identify actions to take forward for change.

The event is in two parts, for the first: in short talks, four, exceptional, early career panellists will give an account of their career path to date, and some of the experiences and challenges they have had working in STEM. After a short lunch break: breakout groups will discuss four key topics and possible solutions.

  • Breakout session 1- Decolonising the curriculum – how can we ensure that future generations are not taught a white-washed version of science and history?
  • Breakout session 2 - The Leaky Pipeline – how can we support students from minority backgrounds through undergraduate and postgraduate study?
  • Breakout session 3 - Expanding our reach – how can we engage with developing countries to create a truly international scientific community?
  • Breakout session 4 - Mental Health and Wellbeing – how can we support postgraduate students and early career researchers with the stress of STEM careers?

Ahead of the event, SULSA is running an original artwork competition to ask, 'What does Diversity and Inclusion in STEM look like to you?' Creations in any media are welcome, with a prize of £150 in Amazon vouchers for the winning artist. The closing date for entries has been extended to 1 December.

Free registration is via Eventbrite through the website linked below.
