A better place? Fostering inclusion in academia and industry

Lancaster University 4th March 2020

A one-day event to discuss best practice for supporting the career progression of underrepresented groups in STEM, with the aim of sharing best practice between academia and industry.

Following on from Lancaster University’s 2014 event A woman’s place? that explored the place of women in STEM careers, we now take another look at where we are in our new event A better place? Fostering inclusion in academia and industry.

Stereotypes and discrimination are still a major challenge for individuals belonging to underrepresented groups who wish to further their careers in science, both in industry and academia.

This event brings together the latest research and best practice from both sectors, with a range of speakers and interactive workshops.

Delegates from both industry and higher education are invited to attend.

The event represents an excellent opportunity for networking.
