Women in Research Ireland: A Platform for Unheard Voices in Research and Academia
Abstract: Women in Research Ireland (WIRI) is a registered charity founded in 2017. Based in Dublin, Ireland, WIRI’s mission is to build a community which connects and unites women, minorities, non-binary and other underrepresented groups. WIRI provides a safe platform for unheard voices with solution-based conversations. The goal is to raise awareness and create cultural changes. This poster explores WIRI’s origins and illustrates the diversity of topics explored at events. WIRI’s grass-roots approach empowers the audience with tools and knowledge to respond against obstacles that minority groups commonly face in academia.
