R4R@Q Webinar Series - Developing Inclusive Research Teams


Wednesday April 27, 2022
10:00 am - 11:30 am


Virtual Workshop

The Vice-Principal Research Portfolio (VPR) proudly presents the webinar “Developing Inclusive Research Teams”.

A research project can benefit from team members who draw from a diversity of ideas, skills, and experiences to inform the content, delivery, outcomes, and overall success of the research project. Processes for planning, recruiting, and retaining team members, as well as building a more inclusive research culture that fosters a sense of belonging among research team members, are key components to developing inclusive research teams.

About this Event:

This is the second in a series of three webinars to support researchers at every stage of their careers to embed EDI in their research practices. This series is closely tied to the online EDI in Research training modules that were developed for the Queen’s research community by the Human Rights and Equity Office and Vice-Principal Research Portfolio. These asynchronous modules can be accessed from the VPR Portfolio website: Integrating EDII in Research.

At this webinar, participants will:

  1. Listen to a short presentation highlighting key components and questions for researchers, at any stage of engagement with equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), to consider how to develop inclusive research teams, from recruitment to engagement, and retention. 
  2. Network with colleagues from across the Queen’s research community to exchange knowledge about their approaches to developing inclusive research teams, including wise practices, the various challenges that may emerge, and the techniques used to work through them. 
  3. Explore actions to begin to implement or to further enhance approaches to developing inclusive research teams. 
  4. Engage in a brief discussion period with fellow participants and webinar facilitators.

In order to make the most of this webinar, all participants are strongly encouraged (but not required) to complete the “Module 2: Developing Inclusive Research Teams” online professional development module prior to attending this webinar. Please note that Module 1 must be completed before access to Module 2 is granted. This webinar is open to all members of the Queen’s community involved in any aspect of research at Queen’s.
