The SHARE Society, a new society within the College of Humanities and Social Sciences hosted a highly successful launch event on Tuesday 24 May.

The SHARE Society will aim to serve as the primary multi-disciplinary forum for a renewed and vibrant research staff community within the College by facilitating cross-School and multi- and inter-disciplinary academic communication, mutual learning and collaboration as well as promoting and supporting personal and career development.

Those researchers and PhD candidates who attended the launch were extremely enthusiastic about the potential for the Society and embraced the opportunity to make new connections across the College research community.

The SHARE Society's next event will be a one-day retreat in late June.
