Call for Speakers – Advancing Diversity and Inclusion in STEM

WTUN for World Engineering Day

Advancing Diversity and Inclusion in STEM

Members of the World Technology Universities Network have demonstrated a commitment to the inclusive advancement of sustainable scientific and technology teaching and research; each demonstrating a commitment to truly equitable innovation for the benefit of people and place.  Does your institution have example(s) of effective, impactful, and innovative approaches to increasing participation, progression, and success in STEM related subjects for otherwise underrepresented or marginalised groups (whatever this might mean in context of subject area, culture, history, or locality)? We invite you to share these examples of excellence with fellow WTUN members so that we might learn from each other for the benefit of all.

As part of a series of WTUN led events coinciding with this year’s UNESCO World Engineering Day (4 March) we are pleased to share this call for speakers for an online event proposed for Tuesday 5 March between 11.00-14.00 GMT (exact times to be confirmed and can be adjusted to accommodate time zones where possible and required). We also seek a moderator/chair to host the event and facilitate a Q&A.

Please submit proposals to wtun@bradford.ac.uk by Friday 16 February.

Depending on level of response we may consider holding more than one session on this subject or repeating it later in the year, so if you have something you would like to share but the date and time above is not suitable, please do contact us to explore options.
