About this Event

Join the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Sub-Committee for a panel discussion and workshop delving into the practical implications of academic-policy knowledge mobilisation through the lens of EDI. Our pre-conference event aims to be an inclusive space that fosters learning, reflection, and collaboration.

This event is for all those involved in academic-policy engagement, including academics, knowledge brokers, and policymakers.

Agenda:

Morning Panel:

Diversifying and democratising knowledge in academic-policy engagement

The imperative to address issues relating to equity diversity and inclusion (EDI) within academic-policy engagement has come to the fore in recent years, both as an ethical obligation and as a necessity for addressing complex societal challenges. But the practical implications of this are fraught with tensions ranging from party-political discourse around so-called ‘woke ideology’, to systemic ‘busyness’ that undermines capacities for meaningful shifts in practice.

Hosted by the Universities Policy Engagement Network EDI Subcommittee this 2-hour hybrid panel event will weave together the philosophical and practical implications of EDI for academic-policy engagement, through a set of provocations expert reflections and participant discussion. Through these interactions we aim to unsettle taken-for-granted framings and assumptions about knowledge production, mobilisation, and use and surface alternative and pragmatic ways to shift our practice that advance EDI in academic-policy engagement practice.

Afternoon Workshop:

EDI Strategies for Academic-Policy Engagement (More information to come).

This fringe event is part of a wider series in the run up to UPEN's main conference, on May 21st at the University of York.
