We are currently calling for speakers to showcase their research as part of Diversity Month in February 2014. The deadline for expressions of interest is the 22 November 2013.
Diversity Month takes place every February and aims to raise awareness and engagement with equalities and diversity issues at UCL. The events aspire to stimulate debate and showcase relevant research from UCL and elsewhere. Each year Diversity Month events have grown in popularity and last year the majority were very well attended by staff and students from across the University. Last year's programme can be found here:
UCL Diversity Month 2014 will explore the theme of time, history and generation, looking at the historical context of equalities and diversity and the way different understandings and experiences of diversity are found within and between generations.
Any member of staff is welcome to submit a short paragraph outlining an idea for a Diversity Month event. Please contact Sonal Bharadva email@example.com with proposals.

The Early Career Forum (ECF) is an ongoing and expanding programme of regular seminars for postdoctoral researchers and PhD students across the IEHC Departments. The ECF events provide educational and networking opportunities to a wide audience of IEHC staff and students (both women and men) and encourage interdisciplinary interaction.
The aim of the ECF is to integrate the existing and emerging Institute activities for early career researchers.
One of the examples is a series of monthly talks for postdoctoral researchers and PhD students, which was launched at the Epidemiology and Public Health Department in July 2013, with the support of colleagues from the Departments of Applied Health Research, Infection and Population Health, and Primary Care and Population Health. These seminars are currently run by the members of the Institute’s Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team – a PhD student (Lauren Bird) and two Research Associates (Bernardine Stegeman and Olga Vikhireva). The talks in 2013 focused on academic job search, authorship and publishing, and oral and poster presentations. Forthcoming events will address academic career planning and development, funding initiatives by the European Union such as Horizon 2020, and other topics which are highly relevant for students and individuals early in their career.
is a fortnightly journal club in the
Department of Infection and Population Health, organised by Jemma O’Connor,
Research Assistant, a part-time PhD student, and a member of the IEHC Athena
SWAN Self-Assessment Team. In the Department of Primary Care and Population Health, Janice Atkins, a PhD student, runs a monthly journal club for PhD students and early career researchers.
If you would like to participate in the ECF activities, share the information about the events at your Department, or suggest topics for future seminars, please get in touch via email (email@example.com).
