An action-orientated event to explore where inclusion and diversity in STEM can improve and identify actions to take forward for change.
Date: Wednesday 28/10/2020
Time: 1200-1530 BST
Cost: FREE to attend
SULSA and its partners, want everyone in Life Sciences and STEM subjects to feel seen and represented, and want to build a more diverse community than we currently have. With this in mind, we present Breaking Barriers in STEM: Through the Looking Glass, an action-orientated event to explore where the issues lie and identify actions to take forward to tackle these.
The event is in two parts, for the first we have four, exceptional, early career panellists who will give an account of their career path to date, and some of the experiences and challenges they have had working in STEM. We hope that this will serve to bring an awareness of challenges faced by specific groups within our community. After a short lunch break we will work in breakout groups to discuss 4 key topics and possible solutions. We hope to come away from today with a set of valuable actions that SULSA and our partners can take forward.
You are welcome to join us for both or either session. Anyone attending this event must follow the code of conduct described here to ensure a welcoming and safe environment for open discussion.
