The project, run by career development organisation Vitae, aimed to break down structural and cultural barriers to advancement by providing tools for universities to support research staff.

The free resource packs are designed to help principal investigators and other managers of research staff to:

  • hold effective conversations with their team members on equality and diversity issues
  • help research staff manage their careers
  • use the Researcher Development Framework, a Vitae career development resource
  • be more aware of their behaviour and attitude towards team members.

More information is available on the Vitae web-site
