AdvanceHE & EDEPI Staff Workshop 1

29 November 2023 @ 13:00 - 16:30

This programme forms part of the Equity in Doctoral Education through Partnership and Innovation (EDEPI) programme, which aims to address the under-representation of racially minoritised students in doctoral research.

About this event

This workshop, delivered over 2 half-day sessions, is designed for staff engaged in doctoral education (those who supervise or otherwise support doctoral students). This workshop will:

  • Enable you to think critically about your role;
  • Support you to develop greater understanding of race equity, specifically in the context of doctoral education;
  • Support you to develop skills and agency to promote inclusion; and
  • Help you develop the insight and skills to identify and effect changes to behaviours, using practical tools and techniques.


This session is aimed at all interested Academic and Professional Services staff who work with PGR students (e.g. Heads of Research Degrees, Postgraduate Research Tutors, Supervisors, Research Institute PGR Teams, Doctoral School Team, Library, Careers and Student Wellbeing staff).


The workshop has been co-created with AdvanceHE as part of Work Package 3 (WP3) of the EDEPI programme which aims to increase the participation of racially minoritised groups in doctoral education. WP3 aims to address concerns that students from racialised groups, at all levels of higher education, can often feel they do not belong. This lack of belonging can lead to disengagement, withdrawal from enrichment activities and a reduction in attainment and progression.

The dates and times of the sessions are below, you should attend both sessions.  Please note these sessions are in person only and will take place in Aspect Court on City Campus.

Wednesday 29 November – 1300 – 1630

Wednesday 6 December – 1300 – 1630

Book your place via this MS Form. Please note that this workshop is for STAFF only, it is not aimed at PGR students.
