How are Societies Managing their DEI Initiatives? (Fireside Chat)
11:00am – 12:30pm EDT (Eastern US)
4:00pm – 5:30pm BST (UK)
Join us in conversation with society leaders responsible for DEI who will be discussing their DEI challenges and sharing best practice.
We know that many societies are currently focusing on DEI initiatives with their membership, leadership, and staff. What does good practice look like within our space and what should leaders be thinking about?
We have brought together society leaders who have engaged in this topic to discuss their organisations’ approach and share details of initiatives and collaborations that the whole community could learn from.
The session will be available on demand after the event.
About Society Street
67 Bricks and TBI join as Sustaining Partners, Frontiers joins as Gold Sponsor and we are delighted to welcome a new international programme committee. (Read our full release.)
Society Street brings together leaders and future leaders of learned societies and associations to provide a forum to explore the challenges facing these organizations.
Originally conceived as a conference, Society Street’s mission is to provide a venue for discussion, debate, networking, and information exchange, uniquely focussed on the whole organization. We aim to address together the strategic questions facing societies around publishing, conferences, membership, outreach and governance – and look at them as part of a joined-up whole.
Our goal is to ultimately provide support to strengthen society leadership, and in turn, strengthen learned societies. We firmly believe that societies are an important part of the research ecosystem, and provide support and advocacy for research, researchers and practitioners in the important work they do in – ultimately – making the world a better place.
In previous years we have run conferences, and while it is still unclear what the landscape for meetings looks like, we continue to stay true to our mission and provide a venue for interesting – and topical – conversations.
Thanks to the continued support of our sponsors, all Society Street online events are free. All online sessions are recorded and can be viewed on demand.
