CLIC: Chinese: Get the name right! new [Places] 12:00 - 13:00 Department of Engineering, CLIC 1

“Pronouncing someone’s name correctly can make people feel valued, honoured and respected — and mispronouncing their name creates real problems.” Gerardo Ochoa

This session will explore Chinese names. How to pronounce them. What it says about the person. The stories behind names. The focus will be on pronunciation but you will also be welcome to share your own experience and tell your stories.

  • Avoiding common errors in academic writing
  • Unpacking journal articles for vocabulary use
  • Self-editing skills
  • Review of the tenets of academic writing for Engineers
  • Writing for blogs

CLIC: Inter-Communication: Unconscious bias new [Places] 12:00 - 14:00 Department of Engineering, CLIC 1

Diversity is a proven catalyst for innovation. However, creating inclusive environments to harness the power of diversity takes preparation. We can be aware or unaware of it, but we are all biased towards people who are different from us. This interactive session will explore where bias come from, what different types of bias can we talk about, and the various forms of diversity. You will gain a deeper understanding of the impact of bias on our daily interactions and decision-making. Additionally, you will learn effective strategies to counteract potential biases.
