The School’s first EDI and Culture conference is an opportunity for protected time to discuss matters related to EDI and culture, including research culture. The conference programme will include a mixture of talks, discussion panels, interactive sessions, abstract presentations in oral and poster format, and rapid ‘lightning talks’.  We will share best practice and discuss barriers, challenges, and solutions. There will also be time to network with people from across the School, the Biomedical Campus and the wider University and find out about their experiences in this area.

The EDI & Culture Conference has three themes:

We invite you to register here. Please note that registration will close on the 18th November, so we encourage you to secure your place as soon as possible.

Call for abstracts!

As part of our aim to capture a diverse range of voices and experiences, we are encouraging everyone to consider submitting an abstract. Firstly, what is an abstract? In the simplest terms, an abstract is a brief summary of a larger work, such as a project, research study, or initiative. For our conference, it’s your opportunity to share your efforts towards promoting EDI and a positive culture within your respective areas.

Abstracts can be submitted for one of three formats of presentation.

Deadline for submissions:  Thursday 21 September 2023, 5 pm.

For more information on any of the above please see our EDI and Culture Conference webpages
