What is the lunch about?
Upto two “Speaker-sparks” will be shared by invited speakers. Each will share a quick story and then ask a question for table groups to discuss. There will be discussion in small table groups on topics concerning diversity issues. Participants can be students, researchers, academics, and industry professionals at any stage of their career. Issues discussed during the lunch include but are not limited to race, ethnicity and culture; age and professional experience; gender identity and sexual orientation; (dis)ability and impairments; religious beliefs; work-life-balance and needs of parents.
