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. Our definition of diversity is quite broad, covering issues such as ethnicity, race, religion, migration, gender, age and other related dimensions.
