Every Researcher Counts – University of Stirling

‘Every researcher counts: equality and diversity in researcher careers in HEIs conference’

Friday 26 August 2011 at the University of Stirling

This one-day conference will support pro-vice-chancellors (or equivalent senior staff), researcher developers and equality and diversity specialists to improve institutional approaches to equality and diversity for recruiting, managing and developing research staff.

The purpose of this event is to open debate around the strategic importance of equality and diversity policy and practice for researchers, embedded in the Scottish research environment and to learn more about the Every Researcher Counts project and its related resources.  Participants will have the opportunity to explore strategic approaches to equality and diversity for researchers; what would a successful strategy look like and how would it be delivered so that ‘every researcher counts’?

Speakers at the conference include:

  • Professor Anne Glover, Chief Scientific Adviser for Scotland
  • Professor Paul Hagan, Director of Research and Innovation, Scottish Funding Council

The event is for participants who can speak on behalf of their institution in relation to:

  • institutional strategies for embedding equality and diversity and the Concordat principles within institutional practice
  •  institutional measures of success and various reporting mechanisms.

This event is part of the broader ‘Every researcher counts’ project commissioned and funded by HEFCE with support from SFC, HEFCW and DEL(NI) and delivered by Vitae (www.vitae.ac.uk/everyresearchercounts).
