What is an ‘abstract’ for this EDI & Culture conference?
An important part of the Conference programme is to hear of work towards improving equality, diversity and inclusion and building a positive workplace culture in different parts of the Clinical School, across its 20 departments, units and institutes, and within its offices, services and teams. We would love to hear about the work you are doing to improve our School, and would like to invite you to submit an ‘abstract’ summarising what you’d like to present! An abstract is a brief written description of up to 300 words of the work you are doing in the space of promoting EDI and a positive culture, whether it is still in design, in progress or complete. The presentation itself can be in spoken form (5 minutes talk or a ‘lightning talk’ of 90 seconds), or in written / graphic form as a poster which will be displayed during the conference.
Why submit a conference abstract?
The abstract of the work to present at the conference can celebrate success, share innovative ideas or tell people about good practice. It can also cover challenges or barriers to progress and the approaches you have taken to finding solutions and ways forward.
Who can submit an abstract?
Anyone who has registered for the conference can submit a conference abstract. Abstracts are invited from students and staff of any job type, grade, specialty, department or office. We invite participation from as wide a range of people as possible.
How should the abstract be submitted?
It can be done online or by an email file attachment.
Is there a deadline for submitting an abstract?
Yes. The closing date for submitting written abstracts is Thursday 5th October (by 5pm).
