Knowledge Equity 2
In August 2020, ten Black women involved in UK research wrote an open letter highlighting the urgent need for greater transparency, accountability and inclusion. Nearly 3,000 individuals signed the letter in support. To discuss the challenges and future actions, Dr Adelaine and colleagues met with representatives from UKRI on 8 October 2020. UKRI responded more than one year later in September 2021.
This event will discuss what happened and how we can we organise collective action to support research and knowledge equity.
In this event, we will be broadening out from a specific focus on race to more broadly consider marginalised academics of different identities and accountability in research procurement and processes.
Details of this event may change as we are awaiting confirmation of other speakers (we have invited UKRI) and will update this page accordingly.
You can email your questions in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and putting “question” in the subject.
Tickets & Donations:
There are free tickets available for this event. However, any proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the non-profit organisation Ladders4Action to help cover costs and Dr. Addy’s future work around knowledge equity.
Post live captioning and post-event transcription will be made available. We are currently seeking funding to support a live sign language interpreter. If you have any accessibility needs please let us know by emailing email@example.com
