WiSER Key Themes
Based around our research and experiences, we have identified three key themes to focus our activities around for the coming academic year. The three main themes are listed below, as well as some potential topics arising out of these themes. The themes and topics will form the structure of our seminar series, Make Wednesdays WiSER, as well as other activities and campaigns. Look out for WiSER initiatives based around these topics over the course of the year.
