We are celebrating the ResNet 15th anniversary in 2015. Please join us at our events throughout the year based on a theme of Women. Past, Present and Future.
ResNet is a contact and information network promoting gender equality and fairness at the UEA, The John Innes Centre, The Institute of Food Research, The Genome Analysis Centre and The Sainsbury Laboratory.
Did you hear about the one-day 'Women of the Future' conference on 23rd April 2015? This was a unique event for over 200 Year 10 girls and a collaboration between the John Innes Centre, ResNet and UEA. It was a great day and we achieved our aim to inspire the next generation of female STEMM professionals! We had sponsorship from various sources, including Intel and they made a video of the event that you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkhcO_V6mps There is also further information at http://nextgenstemm.org.uk/wotf/
PLEASE NOTE: Tickets for the Suffragette film have SOLD OUT
We welcome the active participation of postgraduate students, research staff, postdoctoral researchers, research fellows, technicians, research assistants, UEA faculty, institute project leaders, support and administrative staff of any gender.
We run lunchtime and social events throughout the year, plus a website, an email list, a ResNet facebook page and the @ResNetNorwich twitter account. Overall we aim to:
- promote career development
- provide inspiration, information and support
- raise awareness about equal opportunities
- to bring together women researchers with common interests.
We offer a range of workshops and interesting local and external speakers through our lunchtime events. In recent years these have included high profile scientists, writers, social media commentators, equality professionals and campaigners, entrepreneurs, community singing and creative writing. ResNet also provides an important forum for informal networking and refreshments are offered to promote this.
Further details about our events will appear on our events page and information on past events is also available on this website.
For those interested, you can join our mailing list.
We would welcome your input and comments about gender and diversity issues in the research environment. We would like to include your ideas for events, workshops or meetings that would help to raise awareness of these issues, promote good practice and create an enhanced working environment for the benefit of all.
ResNet is administered from CSED UEA
