Conversation topics at the webinar

Research produces knowledge that develops the society we live in. As researchers, we influence our own research through our background, who we are and the environment we grew up in. By ensuring broad participation in research, with attention to diversity and gender inclusion, we also cultivate research that benefits all citizens of our global community. How do we ensure research that considers different perspectives and that creates many valuable ideas for the development of society? As a researcher, how can you contribute to research that includes diversity and gender equality perspectives? How does diversity in project participation create an inclusive and healthier work environment?

In this webinar, you will meet researchers who have experienced how broad participation in research can improve the quality of research results, with good examples of how to work to achieve knowledge that benefits all citizens.
