Unconscious Bias happens automatically, without conscious control, when our brains make quick judgements or assessments about people and situations. Combatting unconscious bias isn’t about blame. It’s about accountability.

This session will provide an introduction to implicit or unconscious bias and will help you start to understand how our biases influence the decisions we make.

Delivered in a safe and supportive environment, this harassment prevention training offers individuals the opportunity to learn about the different factors that might create and perpetuate a work environment in which harassment and bullying occur, and strategies for how to address this.

Have you ever been concerned about a situation and wanted to help, but didn't? Hearing a racist/sexist/homophobic joke in the tea room? Seeing an inappropriate touch of a friend? Watching a colleague wince at being belittled or interrupted in a team meeting? You're not alone, this is more common for many of us than you might think.

Come along to this short session to find out why this happens and what it means to be an active bystander. This includes simple changes and actions you can take to support others around you without confrontation and, over time, support a more inclusive environment for all of us to live and work in.

PIs: Working Effectively with your Postdoc new Thu 25 Feb 2021   11:30 Finished

So, you’ve recruited a new postdoc – now, what can you do to you ensure you work effectively together, support their work, align your plans, help them to develop and utilise their skills, establish a sense of wellbeing (yours and theirs)? What are your responsibilities in this area, what happens if things go off track, who can help? With guest PIs, including Professor Judy Hirst, this short live session will explore these questions and consider the key skills and knowledge to achieve an effective and productive working relationship and achieve the project goals together. It will also signpost you to resources and further opportunities to build your skills in this area.

Instructions to join the online webinar will be sent 2 days before the session.

This session extends the PI working effectively with your postdoc webinar; it is a pre-requisite to have attended or to watch the webinar in full before attending. In conversation with contributor Dr Ewan St John Smith, this interactive session considers some of the extended questions that came up that we did not have time to cover. These include typical questions below.

  • What is the best way to handle a situation where a postdoc has very different expectations of the post even after many one-to-one discussions?
  • I struggle to give enough direction that they stay close to the core work. Do you have recommendations for how to help guide people towards the work that's relevant and important to you and the grant?
  • How might you handle a situation where one lab member has low enthusiasm/drive and that seems to affect others?
  • Most groups have students, early postdocs and experienced postdocs. What are the main differences in working with them?
  • How often should I interact with a member of staff during a period of extended leave, and should I support interaction with the group during leave?
