The University of Leeds is hosting the 2019 HEN Annual Meeting, which this year is jointly convened with Diversity in Geoscience, UK. The theme is Good Practice in Inclusion, Diversity and Equality in GEES Higher Education. This meeting will provide a forum for lively discussion and the sharing of good practice between teachers, students, practitioners, employers and other stakeholders. 

We very much welcome participation from across the GEES disciplines. The first day will focus on oral presentations and the second more on interactive sessions such as small group discussions and workshops. 

Offers of contributions across all of these formats, and on any aspect of inclusion, diversity and equality, are warmly invited. Some suggested themes include, but are not restricted to: 

  • Attracting and retaining students from diverse backgrounds. 
  • Who’s here?  How equal is GEES HE?
  • Approaches to student and staff mental health.
  • Making fieldwork more inclusive and accessible. 
  • How to make assessment more inclusive. 
Our schedule will include the HEN AGM, to which all delegates are cordially invited.
