LiPP is heading up the 'Research' strand of this EPSRC award, which has been successfully funded by the innovative 'Inclusion Matters' £5 million EPSRC investment, dedicated to bringing equality, diversity and inclusion to the Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine workforce in higher education and industry.
Through the work of Professor Louise Mullany (Co-I), in collaboration with Dr Jacqueline Cordell (Research Fellow) and Dr Clare Burrage (Co-I), we are conducting two innovative interdisciplinary linguistics research projects.
The first is on recruitment language, including identifying linguistic barriers and unconscious bias, and then re-writing advertisements to appeal to broader applicant pools. The second project investigates public engagement online and barriers through digital discrimination, focusing on the language used on mainstream digital media platforms.
We are working with multiple project partners at other HEIs globally and with industry partners.
