Inclusive Research Collective (IRC)

The Inclusive Research Collective (IRC)was recently set up in the Faculty of Life Sciences with the aim of educating University of Bristol staff and students on non-inclusive research practices and to challenge these methodologies within our biomedical and healthcare research.  We are organising a series of workshops which are intended to highlight under-represented groups and to start open discussions to promote awareness and accountability in research. Throughout 2020 and 2021 we are running webinar workshops focusing on different aspects of the intersectionality of inequalities within our teaching and research. A subsidiary discussion group, The Learning Forum, will run in parallel to promote active engagement with addressing, in the first instance, wider issues of racism within society.

Live sessions will be recorded, where possible, and the content available for viewing on the IRC FLS SharePoint Site. 

Please note, all students and staff within the University of Bristol are welcome to attend these events.
