Calling all technicians! New research project: Call for participants


July 2nd, 2020

The Technically Speaking project, conducted by the STEMM-CHANGE team, is collecting narratives of personal experience from technicians during the COVID-19 crisis.

Technically Speaking is a new research project to understand the lived experiences of the technical community in UK higher education and research during the pandemic

The STEMM-CHANGE team are asking technicians from UK universities and research institutes to tell them about their experiences during the COVID-19 crisis.

They are particularly interested in any equality, diversity and inclusion issues that technicians may have encountered, or are concerned about encountering in the future.

The project aims to shed light on barriers, bias and discrimination, as well as good practice, to ensure fairer post-COVID-19 workplaces.

Technicians are invited to participate in one of two ways (personal choice):

  1. By taking part in a video interview with a STEMM-CHANGE researcher;
  2. By submitting written responses to some prompt questions.

All responses will be anonymised.

The Technically Speaking project is part of ongoing research being conducted by STEMM-CHANGE, an EPSRC-funded project driving a positive change in culture and practices in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI).

Email the team to register your interest.

For more information about this research and its role in the wider STEMM-CHANGE project at the University, please email the STEMM-CHANGE team.
