On 14 February, we are excited to launch a new series called “Taboos and tricky topics” that aims to engage in challenging conversations about science culture. This series is a follow-up to our Vision for a great science culture, which outlined the values, behaviors, and expectations of a positive science community.
We believe that creating a positive science culture will benefit everyone, but it may present challenges. That’s why we want to create a platform for individuals at different career stages and from different backgrounds to share their perspectives on these tensions within science culture. We encourage you to join the discussion and share your thoughts through our questions and comments board.
The goal of this series is to provide an opportunity for people to have open and honest conversations about the issues facing science culture today. We want to hear from people who may have experienced challenges in advancing their research career while also dedicating time to improving aspects of science culture. We welcome your input through our questions and comments board, where you can submit anonymously.
To participate in the conversation, visit our YouTube channel or LinkedIn page at 4pm UK time on 14 February. You can also submit your questions and comments at any time leading up to the event. For more information, please visit our website.
