Pride in the Field: Tools for Promoting LGBTQ+ Inclusion in Fieldwork

What’s on offer?

30-minute panel discussion by academics at the University of Leeds and external partner organisations, including LGBTQ+ Field Network, highlighting key findings and the training toolkits developed through the ESRC LSSI Impact Acceleration Award project Pride in the Field: Promoting Inclusive Fieldwork Spaces for LGBTQ+ Workers in Research, Policy and Practice. This will be followed by a 60-minute participatory discussion with audience members, inviting them to reflect on the toolkits, what works from their perspective, what is missing, and how they might implement the toolkits in their own work.
