#PEPTogether online get-togethers

An informal online space for engagement professionals during these uncertain times

#PEPTogether monthly online get-togethers

As we try to make sense of what is happening in the world, in the UK, in our universities, in our neighbourhoods, in our lives, we think it is important to create space to think together. Since March 2020, the PEPtogethers have provided such a rich place to engage together, to share some of the highs and lows of life during a pandemic; and to support one another as we adapt to new ways of working, thinking and doing. The NCCPE have been delighted to work with the sector to create spaces for really useful conversation, which you can see summarised in the reports below.

We are now running monthly online PEPtogether for members of the PEP Network – so do join us if you haven’t already (it’s free!). If you would like to participate in the monthly events, but aren’t able to join the network, we will be delighted to welcome you as a guest. You’ll just need to let us know you are coming.

Coming up

Where next for culture change?

Thursday 30th September, 11:00 - 12:30

Since the Beacons for PE, the public engagement community has been at the vanguard of thinking about the challenges of changing research culture. Where have we got to in our collective understanding of culture change? What expertise can the PE community offer, and how can we use the focus on culture to progress our work? 

The link to join will be available on the PEP Network slack channel. If you aren't a member but would like to join us, please email Jack at jack.kerrigan@uwe.ac.uk.
