Recap: #ECRchat on “Issues for ECRs in a minority group”

This week’s chat was on Issues for ECRs in a minority group and was hosted by Dr Beth Hellen.

We had an interesting chat about issues for people in minority groups, mostly focusing on women, people with disabilities and LGBT people due to the expertise of the tweeters who were present.  Topic included departmental diversity, barriers to careers and conference access and schemes to help combat these.  Although we only really scratched the surface, most people came away with a few new thoughts about the issues, so it was fairly successful.

See the storify for a more in depth round up.

The last question asked was whether we at @ECRchat can do anything to make the chats more inclusive.  If you have any ideas regarding this, please get in touch.
