Equality & Diversity Discussion

14:00-15:40


Panellists: David Bacon, Jess McIver & Samaya Nissanke


In this session a panel of researchers will discuss the biases which may arise in four specific areas common to all academic researchers: postdoc/faculty hiring process, graduate student recruitment, invited speakers and the environment in your institution or collaboration. We will invite session attendees to reflect on best practises, with the goal of leaving the session with concrete actionables to improve your scientific communities.
