The UK Mission to the EU, the League of European Research Universities (LERU) and the European University Association (EUA) organise the webinar “From Diversity STEMs Success: Promoting Gamechangers in Research and Innovation” on 23 March from 11:00 to 12:00 CEST.
As part of the UK G7 Presidency Campaign to Build Back Better, and Build Back Equal, this webinar will convene experts to discuss how best to promote and protect diversity in research and innovation. In particular, the discussion will examine intersectionality and diversity beyond simple gender parity to include the full range of identities and experiences of European researchers and innovators. Through sharing their knowledge, experiences and lessons learned, the speakers will present concrete issues and potential solutions for the UK and EU alike.
