“Let’s be clear about EDI” webinar series for 2021

May 13th, 2021

The Leadership and Management Academy continue to produce the “Let’s be clear about EDI” webinar series for 2021.

We launched the “Let’s be clear about EDI” campaign in October 2020, which aims to promote a university wide conversation at a local level to help develop our understanding of what Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) means and how the university embeds this in everything that we do.

We continue to inform, support and guide us all, with a series of webinars, running throughout 2021 on some of the key aspects of EDI.

Details for upcoming webinars are below:

Women and Research – Friday 21 May, 2pm – 2:50pm
Gender affects all aspects of life and the world of research presents no exception. Join guest speakers from the Nottingham and Anne Mclaren Research Fellows as they discuss some of the challenges faced by women in research, as well as the opportunities and exploring the current perspectives, and the unique and diverse contributions that women are bringing to research. Find out more about the crucial role you play in creating a workplace that supports, enables and celebrates women in research.

Gender Diversity and Identity – Tuesday 15 June, 11am – 11:50am
Gender diversity can be an incredibly complex and evolving area no less than within the LGBTQIA+ community. We will learn some fundamentals about the different orientations, how they form a part of someone’s identity, distinct from gender. Join members of the LGBTQIA+ Network as they discuss the challenges faced by the LGBTQIA+ community on gender diversity and identity, exploring the current perspectives, the challenges and shared experiences. You will be able to hear how you can support your LGBTQIA+ colleagues and the role of good leadership and management in this context.

These webinars are open to all University of Nottingham staff and are designed to be a relaxed and informal space to discuss key challenges and opportunities that our colleagues face in the context of equality, diversity and inclusion.
