Showcasing society events and impacts

Information for research staff societies looking to run activities and events.

As a society you may already run a number of career and professional development events for yourselves and your department. If you are looking for new ideas for events or want some inspiration, watch the videos below. We will also gather examples to display on these pages. Currently, we have some examples available on showcasing female careers and/or managing work life balance.

Hear about what successful events other societies run to get some good ideas, and hear some of the many ideas society members have on how to increase the impact and reach of societies.
