Community in Academia Network Meeting

network meeting, community in academia for BIPoC is in the center of the canva, with an orange, gridlike background

Monday, June 5th 2023, starting at 7 pm

OYA Bar (Mariannenstraße 6, 10997 Berlin)

There will be no translations, the event will be held in German/English spoken language.

On the occasion of this year’s overall topic “Labour”, we would like to invite BIPoC PhD students and master students interested in doing a PhD to a networking meeting.

People who have recently completed their PhD and or have been working in the academic field for some time are also welcome to come, get to know each other and exchange knowledge!

Our hope is to strengthen and support connections within our academic communities. A lot has already been achieved, work, recognition and spaces have been fought for and in this sense we would like to join in opposing the isolation and exploitation of our community members in and through the university system. For aspiring academics as well, networking is fundamental here and, unfortunately, is still too often embedded in elitist, white spaces.
We hereby like to counter this with our own space.

At the network meeting we want to create an open exchange to get to know each other, to learn from each other and to collect needs and wishes. We will see if this leads to another meeting or further ideas. Let’s get into conversations together, share and empower.

Register by May the 29th, 2023 to
