Leadership training and networking events for women in research
Join us for a series of panel discussions and workshops organized by TRIGGER
This year Taylor & Francis is partnering with TRIGGER to run a series of professional development events designed for women in research and business.
Based at Birkbeck, University of London, TRIGGER stands for Transforming Institutions by Gendering contents and Gaining Equality in Research. It aims to understand the under-representation of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine (STEMM) subjects. The project also provides recommendations for fostering organizational change.
Each term during 2019 we’re running a panel event on a theme related to diversity and inclusion. There will also be time during the sessions for networking over refreshments. These events are open to all.
As well as the panel events, there’s a series of smaller leadership workshops to help women in research grow in their careers. TRIGGER have designed the workshops for female early career researchers but all are welcome. Details about the next event are coming soon.
Register for the next panel session:
Wednesday July 10, 6:30pm, Birkbeck, University of London
Confirmed speakers: Belinda Brooks Gordon (Birbeck), Saskia Hill (Elvie), Megan Duffy (Kubrick), and Lisa Talia Moretti (Methods).
Future TRIGGER panel sessions and workshops will cover:
- Goal setting
- Leadership skills
- Gendering research data
- Developing networking skills
- Why diversity and inclusion are critical for the future of STEMM research.
Can’t get to London to attend the TRIGGER events?
Don’t worry, because we’ll be sharing summaries of the key points afterwards, so that everyone can benefit from the ideas shared. Therefore, to ensure we notify you as soon as a new report is available, please register for the weekly Taylor & Francis Insights newsletter.
