From Gender to Diversity: Considering good practices to increase diversity in recruitment, to enhance experience, success & retention

Shifting gender/ diversity in PhD recruitment in the physical sciences represent an incredibly complex challenge; however, continuing to say that it is a “wicked problem” is not helpful in shifting the agenda forward.

The intention in this session was to to challenge academics in the network to consider:
  • What will be the legacy of SpinNano towards Equality and Diversity?
  • To get academics to consider their own responsibilities in shifting practices/ research culture
  • To help academics reflect on their current supervisory practices that may impact the experience of researchers
  • To dare them to consider small actions in challenging recruitment practices that may bring different outcomes
