News: Cel­e­brat­ing Diver­si­ty Week

Untitled Design 16

From the 31st of Jan­u­ary to the 1st Feb­ru­ary we cel­e­brat­ed Diver­si­ty Week. The week, which was organ­ised by our Stu­dent Well­be­ing Team was cen­tred around the con­cept of under­stand­ing that every­one is unique and that each of our indi­vid­ual dif­fer­ences share a pur­pose in society.

Through­out the week learn­ers were invit­ed to take part in a vari­ety of online and in per­son events includ­ing dis­cus­sion forums, drum­ming and dance work­shops, encour­ag­ing every­one to come togeth­er as one team and community. 

With a col­lege com­mu­ni­ty as diverse as ours, it’s real­ly impor­tant to raise aware­ness and cel­e­brate diver­si­ty. We had a range of enrich­ment activ­i­ties that got stu­dents to try some­thing new, as well as hav­ing Let’s talk’ which gave stu­dents the oppor­tu­ni­ty to feed­back on their expe­ri­ence. All feed­back from the Let’s talk’ activ­i­ties will be fed into the col­leges Equal­i­ty and Diver­si­ty Com­mit­tee to sup­port the col­lege in being more inclusive.

Nadia Whittome Diversity Week
MP Nadia Whittome joined our students virtually to discuss matters important to them.

Forums and online dis­cus­sion ses­sions cov­ered mat­ters impor­tant to our stu­dents and the col­lege com­mu­ni­ty, these includ­ed race, gen­der and gen­der diver­si­ty, dis­abil­i­ty aware­ness and LGBTQIA+ awareness. 

MP Nadia Whit­tome joined our stu­dents vir­tu­al­ly to dis­cuss mat­ters impor­tant to them such as com­bat­ting racism and street harass­ment to them as part of our Let’s Talk About Race Forum. Nadia also spoke to our stu­dents about her polit­i­cal jour­ney and the issues that inspired her to fight back.

Equal­i­ty and Diver­si­ty Offi­cer Chloe Richards chaired a dis­cus­sion forum on dis­abil­i­ty awareness.

We cel­e­brate diver­si­ty because it is impor­tant that every­one is treat­ed the same and not dif­fer­ent­ly. When I ran the Let’s Talk About Dis­abil­i­ties dis­cus­sion forum it was love­ly to see lots of stu­dents attend­ing. Every­one enjoyed them­selves and were ful­ly engaged. It was a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to get lots of great feed­back from the ques­tions I asked too.

Our TV and Film stu­dents worked in col­lab­o­ra­tion with our Safe­guard­ing and Well­be­ing teams to pro­duce a video inter­view­ing fel­low learn­ers, ask­ing what diver­si­ty meant to them.

Diver­si­ty to me is a group of peo­ple com­ing togeth­er who all have dif­fer­ent stories.
