Success for University's Inclusion week

Success for University's Inclusion week

The University’s Inclusion Week was a fantastic celebration of the diversity of our campus and community.  The week started with an inspiring talk by Charlie Martin, whose spoke about her passion for her chosen career path as a motor racing driver and her journey to transition to a female while pursuing her ambitions.  

The second key note speech was presented by two colleagues from the Institute of Medical Sciences and focussed on their successful careers and how they have faced challenges related to disability.  There were sessions on Mindfulness, mental health, British Sign Language, Unconscious Bias and supporting staff and students who experience hearing loss, as well as events across campus such as stalls and the opportunity to engage with the Aberdeen Sports Village team.  The week concluded with the International Women’s Day Conference which had the theme of #BalanceforBetter and the audience was treated to fantastic talks by, among others, Kate Bryan, art historian, curator and arts broadcaster and Miranda Krestovnikof, biologist and resident wildlife expert on BBC One’s The One Show.

During the week delegates were invited to contribute to discussions on inclusion and if you would like to offer thoughts on what we could be doing better, or to find out more about Inclusion Week, please contact Janine Chalmers, Equality and Diversity Adviser janine.chalmers@abdn.ac.uk
