Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Day 2022
The first Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Day took place on 6 May to celebrate Univ’s diversity and help set the College’s EDI agenda. Students, staff and Fellows enjoyed ice creams in the sunshine, followed by a drinks reception and a panel discussion.
The panel discussed the question “What does an inclusive college look like?”, chaired by Valerie Amos, the Master. Current and recent Univ graduates Halima Doski (2020, Chemistry, former JCR Racial Equality Officer), Rory Gaskin (2018, Law), Founder of The Learners’ Collective, Zimpande Kawanu (2020, MSt World Literature), International Officer at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities, and Ffion Price (2017, History and Politics), Schools Liaison Officer, led an audience discussion of the question.
Chloe Bardou (2020, History and Politics), JCR Access and Equality Officer, said, “The Univ EDI event really brought the College together, from different year groups and people of all backgrounds mixing on the lawns with ice cream, to posing important questions at the panel event to ensure we are always striving to improve how accessible and diverse the College is. It was a great event and I look forward to it occurring more regularly at Univ to celebrate our students and staff.”
