University of Greenwich: University of Greenwich wins equality, diversity and inclusivity award

The award is for an AGCAS member service that can show demonstrable progress in achieving equality, diversity and inclusion goals through initiatives that have identified areas of under-representation amongst staff and/or students and are making a difference. This could be in relation to a range of areas including, but not restricted to gender, disability, LGBTIQ+ and Black and minority ethnic under-representation.291850

The winner was announced at the AGCAS Awards for Excellence presentation at the end of June, this year.

A partnership between seven universities, including Greenwich, enables the RE:Action 24/7 programme to provide training on inspirational themes, such as ‘Accepting who you are and harnessing your diversity’ and ‘Cultivating a winning mindset and building resilience’.

With a mix of talks from aspirational and representative figures, workshops and reflection sessions, employer-led Q&As and access to a wealth of resources, the programme promotes a sense of belonging, increased confidence, and access to equality of opportunity for over 3,000 students from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
