Opportunities for Alumni: That's Me Walking Interviews

Get involved in a unique opportunity to explore post-PGR pathways and break barriers to postgraduate research. We are looking for Global Majority PGR alumni to walk, talk and reflect on navigating their pathways out of the doctorate. We are particularly interested in understanding the PGR pathways of Global majority alumni—both aspirational and real—and the challenges faced in realising those pathways.  

Walking Interviews offer a way to explore the highly embodied and meandering nature of career paths. They take the research outside to safe, independent spaces and offer a way for the lived experiences and pathways of global majority alumni to emerge through conversation. Your participation has the capacity to effect change by informing interventions made by That’s Me! to tackle barriers experienced by global majority alumni in realising their post-PGR pathways. 

The Walking Interviews will take in place in Birmingham across May and June 2024. Dates and times are flexible. Once you have signed up one of the That's Me! team will be in-touch to organise your Walking Interview.   

Participants will be rewarded with a £20 Love2Shop Voucher. Love2Shop Vouchers can be used at more than 50 popular high street and online brands. Refreshments will also be provided during the Walking Interview.
