About this Event:
This conference offers you the opportunity to hear from BME researchers, from PhD student to Professor level (and beyond!) who share their experiences of how they have managed to navigate the academic space successfully so you can envision your own route to your place within the academic arena.
In addition to inspiring, encouraging and empowering accounts from BME academics, you will also get the chance to participate in workshops providing practical advice and support on everything from networking, grant writing, mentoring, coaching and sponsorship, to maintaining your mental health and wellbeing in academia.
This one-day workshop will help equip you with the tools to successfully navigate the academic space so you can stay in academia!
