Why centring diverse voices and histories shouldn’t be contained to campaigns
The University of Bradford is committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion so what does this mean for staff, students and our partners? Through a lens of celebrating awareness campaigns this event as part of UNIfy Festival considered how institutions celebrate these campaigns with integrity and ensure the work is embedded beyond the period of celebration. It discussed the purpose, contribution and intentions of campaign months/weeks/days and what this means for institutions year round.Watch now
