Webinar: Supporting doctoral researchers from diverse backgrounds
Team Researcher Academy
This online course is run by the Researcher Academy
The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. Semester 1 courses will be available for booking from the second week of October and Semester 2 courses from the second week of February.
The purpose of this online workshop is to contribute towards the development of a guide for research supervisors. This guide will help research supervisors improve support for and better understand our diverse postgraduate research community.
This session is open to all PGR’s. We would be particularly keen to hear from any postgraduate researchers who identify as having protected characteristics as defined by the UK’s Equality Act 2010.
Marriage and Civil Partnership
Pregnancy and Maternity
Religion or Belief
We would also like to include a wider range of characteristics such as neurodiversity and socio-economic background.
