Conference – Breaking Ground 2023

Join us live from The Beacon Conference

Here, we invite students and staff from universities across the UK to celebrate success in widening participation, sharing best practice, and explore opportunities in enhancing support available for under-represented groups in higher education.

This conference is themed: Breaking Ground. We are proud to be delivering protected internships, designed by those that they serve. We aim to break ground by not only building widening access to clinical research with input from those from these backgrounds, but by also sharing best practice to create significant strides in supporting our under-represented future clinical academics.

The conference will be held at Scarman, University of Warwick, on 21/10/2023.
