Equality & Diversity webinar for BlackInImmuno week

As part of #BlackInImmunoWeek, the BSI is delighted to bring you a webinar on equality and diversity. 

This webinar was part of the British Society for Immunology's career development webinar series. It took place on 7 July 2020 and was presented by Dr Faith Uwadiae, Postdoctoral Training Fellow at the Francis Crick Institute and Karim Boustani, PhD student at Imperial College London. 

Watch this webinar to discover:

  •  What is diversity and inclusion? 
  •  What does it mean for STEM in the light of current events?
  •  Why is it important for organisations such as universities and research institutes to promote diversity and inclusion?
  •  What benefits can it bring?

In this session, the speakers shared practical solutions and effective ways to promote diversity and to enact positive change. Through their own lived experiences and as young scientists, Faith and Karim talked about the issues surrounding diversity and inclusion. 

This webinar suits scientists looking for ways to promote diversity and inclusion and to become active rather than just passive participants around this issue.

This webinar is a BSI membership benefit but is being made freely available for #BlackInImmunoWeek with the agreement of the two presenters. After that it will revert to being a BSI membership benefit.
