Workshop description: ‘Inclusivity’ has become somewhat of a popular word that gets thrown around quite a bit these days – but what does it really mean? What does good inclusivity look like? And how can you be inclusive as a researcher?
It is important to talk about inclusivity; but more importantly, we believe in the need to practise it. That’s why in this workshop, we want to provide researchers with a safe space to discuss LGBTQ+ inclusivity, and the opportunity to share and learn in a non-judgemental way. In this workshop, we will highlight the use of inclusive language and how to create an inclusive conference environment. We will also discuss inclusivity in designing, writing, and thinking about research. There will also be opportunities to talk about real life research challenges and discuss potential strategies to overcome them.
We welcome researchers at all levels of their inclusivity interests and practices – it’s a session aimed at reflecting and learning in a safe and non-judgemental space.
Technical details: This workshop will involve a high level of interaction with cameras and mics on.Subscribe to the waiting list through Sussex Direct and be notified when a new course becomes available.
