Sign up to our live online sessions with leading researchers to discuss how to build a positive research culture. Learn about new approaches and hear what's already working.
It’s time to build a better research culture – one that is creative, inclusive and honest. Our free online festival from 22 to 26 March 2021 will bring together the research community to take action and help reimagine research.
During the festival, you will:
To make sure the festival is a positive experience for everyone, we’ve put together a simple code of conduct. Please read this in advance – by attending, you agree to follow this code.
The festival will explore concepts relating to equality, diversity and inclusion in research. This may include discussions about age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage, civil partnership, pregnancy, maternity, race, religion, belief, sex, sexual orientation or any other aspect of diversity not included as a protected characteristic by the Equality Act 2010(opens in a new tab).
With this in mind, it is important to respect the experience of others and remember that there are oppressions that disadvantage some of us and benefit others. We will not tolerate harassment of festival participants in any form, including on social media or by email.
Anyone who violates the code may be sanctioned or removed from the festival by Wellcome staff.
We ask that you:
If you are being harassed, if you notice that someone else is being harassed, or if you have any other concerns, contact a member of Wellcome staff immediately. Wellcome staff will have ‘Wellcome’ included in their names on BlueJeans; if you click on their name, you will have the option to send them a message. Or you can email email@example.com and a staff member will get back to you as soon as possible.
All video content will have British Sign Language interpretation provided by Michelle Wood, Peter Abraham and Russell Aldersson.
All video content will have speech to text captions. Live captions will be provided by MyClearText.
We'll be recording the live events, so you can watch them in your own time.
If you have any accessibility requirements, contact the festival team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to help.
