Cross College Collaboration
In 2013 and 2014, post-graduate researchers from the Social Policy, Government and School of Education took part in the ERSC Festival of Social Science event at the Library of Birmingham. The sessions allowed the public to view posters displaying the current and diverse research areas within the University of Birmingham as well as take part in debates which gave many ‘food for thought!’ All of the researchers agreed that this was truly a fantastic and proud moment to represent the University of Birmingham.

Doctoral Researcher Diversity Network (DRDN)
The Doctoral Researcher Diversity Network (DRDN) is the first cross-University network for PhD students (DRs) studying aspects of diversity and is supported by its Alumni Impact Fund. The Network will provide opportunities for doctoral researchers (DRs) to meet other DRs with shared interests through a series of networking lunches and workshops, develop new skills aimed at enhancing their employability, and provide opportunities to collaborate with each other across different disciplines.
