call for participants
Call for early career researchers (up to 10 year post doctoral) to participate in a British Council funded workshop on Advancing Maternity Protection in Malaysia: Meeting Social Welfare and Business Needs, and Contributing to Economic Development
Improving maternity protection in developing countries is a critical yet much under researched topic. Under the Researcher Links scheme offered within the Newton Fund, the British Council will be holding a workshop on the above theme in Penang, Malaysia, from 27-31 July, 2016. The workshop is being coordinated by Middlesex University and The Centre for Research on Women and Gender (KANITA), University Sains Malaysia, and will also include contributions from other leading researchers. The convenors are now inviting Early Career Researchers from the UK and Malaysia to apply to participate in this workshop. All travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the Newton Researcher Links programme. Click here for application form, with more details on the initiative. Completed applications should be sent to be M Houssart in the UK and Waringin in Malaysia before the deadline of 3pm, UK time/10pm, Malaysian time, on 1 April, 2016.
Entrepreneurship researchers at Nottingham University Business School are seeking participants to be interviewed for a study on the role of gender in business exit or closure. The interviews will take place in the first two weeks of July.
If you are a woman based in the UK who has, in the last three years, closed or exited a business you founded, we would like to speak with you.
We are particularly interested in hearing from women for whom caring responsibilities were a factor in their decision to close the business; however, we are keen to learn about the range of reasons why women may choose to close or exit a business.
Each interview will last no more than an hour, and can take place in person, by phone or Skype. You will be compensated £30 for your time.
If you would like to participate, please contact Dr Janine Swail, Nottingham University Business School: janine . swail at nottingham.ac.uk.
Please forward on to your networks. Many thanks!
