IPPSnet: GRADnet’s diversity network

Welcome to SEPnet’s new Intersectional PhD Peer Support network (IPPSnet)!

We are currently in the process of setting up IPPSnet to connect and support underrepresented PhD students across the SEPnet institutions. This includes (but is not necessarily limited to) Black and ethnic minorities, disabled, LGBTQIA+, minority religion and women students.

We aim to create a friendly and supportive intersectional community and to run events and initiatives to provide peer support and mentoring!

The network is being set up by and for underrepresented students. If you are a current SEPnet PhD student, you can join us in setting up the network by joining our Slack page: https://join.slack.com/t/sepnetphdnetwork/signup

You can also let us know what you’d like to get out of the network by filling in our quick, anonymous survey:https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BBDMF32

 More updates coming soon…
