A lunchtime event was held on Wednesday the 8th of March to recognise and reward the work of staff and students across the University who have been bold for change.
Over 60 nominations were received, highlighting a range of activities across the three Faculties to promote gender equality. The Deputy Chair of Council, Jacqui Henderson OBE gave a speech on her experience of being bold for change. The Executive Board lead for Diversity, Professor Phillip Wright, also congratulated the nominees on behalf of the University.
The achievements of individual staff and students have also been highlighted on social media and the University’s media screens.
