NU Women/Wellcome Trust Reimagine Research Culture - Virtual Café

NU Women/Wellcome Trust Reimagine Research Culture - Virtual Café

In January 2020 the Wellcome Trust shared the results of their Reimagine Research Culture survey – the largest ever on the experiences of research culture. A series of Town Halls took place across the country to hear directly from the different aspects of the community, but Wellcome were conscious that not every voice could be heard in this way - they developed a Café Culture kit so people could gather in smaller groups to discuss the survey findings, and propose solutions.

NU Women will be running these cafés virtually in order to inform how we can better support members of our community, and contribute to a more creative, inclusive and honest research culture at Newcastle. These are open to the whole NU Women community, regardless of area of work, role or grade – everyone contributes to research culture, everyone's voice matters, and so everyone is welcome.

Our first Reimagine Research Culture Café will be held on Tuesday 23rd June at 11.00-12.30 via Zoom. There will be a maximum of 20 attendees at this event due to the virtual format; however, we will be running a second cafe in September on a different day/time, so as to best accommodate people in different situations. If you are unable to attend the cafe on June 23rd, we encourage you to register your interest for future cafes.

Please ensure that you provide us with an email address that you currently have access to, so we can send you guidance on preparing for and attending this event.
