Posting on behalf of Linda Przhedetsky at #UTS:

Are you a #researcher who is wondering how to communicate your findings and make an #impact

Join Linda Przhedetsky, UTS (https://profiles.uts.edu.au/Linda.Przhedetsky) and Steph Slack, #Monash (https://au.linkedin.com/in/stephslack) for a free, 2hr session that's open to anyone interested in learning about translating research into a range of policy and advocacy contributions.

We'll cover:
- What is a policy contribution?
- Which aspects of research could influence policy? (we'll demystify the policy process!)
- Who should you share your research with?
- How can you identify, connect, and collaborate with allies in your field?
- What are the most effective ways to make a difference?

By the end of this workshop, you'll have:
- An understanding of how policy is made
- Practical next steps for translating your research into policy and advocacy contributions

PSA:

Postdoc researchers are not students; they are not doing a course, nor will they graduate.

Please see the prefix "post" in job title.

It seems like this basic knowledge is not known at senior levels within some academic institutions.

This contributes to postdocs being underpaid and undervalued.

Working on my CV as I prepare for a job search. I'm a #researcher. My skills are . . . esoteric, I suppose. (Obsolete is the word I use when discouraged.) There are companies/services out there that would value them, but it's hard to find these entities and I'm at a bit of a loss where to look. In the past, the right jobs have just kind of found me. It would be great if that happened again, but I can't rely on that and we need an adequate income. Wish me luck. #geneadons #historidons #libraries

I think there are also some good aspects relating to the inclusion of research process decision gates in regard to #Researcher #Safeguarding and improving the feeling of psychological safety within a Team.

If a Researcher knows there are stages in the process where research activities not providing value can be closed off in a controlled way it both frees up time to focus on what is important and provides a safe space to voice concerns and opinions.
