Durham Psychology Seminar Series — A Discussion About Discrimination, Inequality, & Inclusion in Higher Education
Join us on Friday, Jan 15 at 13:00 for a special edition of the Durham Psychology Guest Seminar Series (Open to all)! A wealth of research suggests that women, ethnic and sexual minorities face very unique challenges and obstacles at work, particularly in hiring and in career progressions. Likewise, news of instances of discrimination against students of minority and less privileged backgrounds abound. In this online panel event, we will discuss discrimination in higher education institutions, how it affects students and staff, and how social psychology can inform practice and policies to increase equality in the sector.
We have invited five leading psychologists with varied expertise in group processes, identity, and EDI in organisations to discuss the latest research findings, along with their own lived experiences.
