Election post

What do you hope to achieve in the role if you are elected?

Given how diverse our student body is, as Equity & Inclusion Officer I would…

  1. Work to develop sustainable plans & actions that continue to promote equity, inclusion & accessibility.
  2. Work with clubs & societies to highlight the importance of considering intersectionality when making decisions.
  3. Listen to marginalised communities within the student body to uplift & celebrate their voice and interests.
  4. Create a clear programme for celebrations such as BHM, Disability History Month and LGBTQ+ Month, as well as creating resources to distribute.
What will you bring to this role (e.g. experience, skills or qualities)?

Undertaking this role would give me the opportunity to expand the work I’ve done to improve inclusivity as Arts Officer on a wider scale. I produced an artsUCL event for BHM, as Equity & Inclusion Officer I’d work closely with part time officers to create a varied programme to engage a wider audience. As an arts producer for various charities centering the queer &/or POC experience I know how to implement small actions, which naturally create a safer environment for those who are ‘Other-ed’.I feel comfortable having uNcOMfOrTaBlE but necessary conversations as a team player.

Please summarise why students should vote for you.

I came to university apolitical & avoidant of my identity, throughout my time within SU UCL spaces, I’ve fallen in love with my black queer womanhood & have developed a strong drive to support others in systems that weren’t built with them in mind - I believe in collective success. I’d work hard to foster welcoming spaces within the Union. Given my approachability and organisation I would love to work with you all to create a sustainable safer space for all. Follow my campaign on social media for more details on how I’d achieve these aims
