About Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) SIG
The EDI SIG is open to all individuals, irrespective of how you identify, your level of seniority in your organisation, years of experience in the knowledge transfer sector or knowledge of matters relating to EDI. Everyone is valued and welcome.
We know that organisations with a workplace culture strong in equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging are more innovative, have been linked to increased organisational productivity and are positively perceived by their communities. Knowledge transfer practitioners are the translators and curators of academic derived innovation, driving promising technologies to our end users.
The EDI SIG is an open forum where members can discuss and learn everything about this important area. Through increased knowledge and the ability to visualise using an EDI lens, members will be able to incorporate EDI in into Knowledge Transfer/Technology Transfer (KT/TT) best practice.
As a new SIG, we want to hear from individuals who would like to learn about EDI initiatives, shape new initiatives and enhance KT/TT codes of practice. This could be from contributing ideas through our on-line meetings to volunteering to participate in our activities.
