The International Staff Network (ISN) are committed to exploring and highlighting how diverse socio-cultural backgrounds inform and underpin individual research viewpoints, and how this shapes the unique and nuanced perspectives we bring to our University community.

The ISN welcomes you to attend our first webinar focusing on the wider contributions made by our international colleagues. We will mark International Women’s Day 2021 by celebrating some of our colleagues who have agreed to share how their own experiences informed and shaped their research and its wider impact.
