You must be able to complete your proposed activities by the end date of your main Wellcome grant.
Your proposed activities should include opportunities for you to:
increase knowledge and understanding of diversity and inclusion
tackle the specific diversity and inclusion challenges facing your team, department and/or organisation.
The activities we support can take many forms, including ways to:
make your work environment more inclusive, for example by producing good practice toolkits and guidance for colleagues, organising diversity and inclusion training, or consulting with a specialist for advice
support underrepresented groups in your field, for example by supporting staff networks or providing tailored mentorship and training
consider diversity throughout the lifecycle of your research, for example by looking at how to consult a range of people while you’re planning, doing and evaluating your work
organise inclusive and accessible conferences to share the findings of your research, for example by contributing to the costs of hosting diverse speakers and panellists, or paying for a palantypist.
We will review:
your vision, aims and target audience
your proposed activities and how they will address the diversity and inclusion challenges you’ve identified, based on relevant evidence such as published data or the results of an internal survey
the support you’ll get from your host organisation and relevant stakeholders
how you’ll monitor and evaluate your proposed activities, including how you’ll measure success and share what you’ve learned.
