– Wednesday 10 May 2017, Canterbury Campus, Woolf College, Seminar Room 6, 1pm – 2pm.

This session surveys literature on micro-affirmation, which mostly focuses on its contribution to enhancing equality and inclusivity in the workplace, and considers whether the development of consciously micro-affirmatory practice in higher education has the potential to reduce established and persistent attainment gaps.

The purpose of the event is to allow colleagues from across the University to meet and exchange ideas. All staff are invited to attend so please do circulate this invitation to colleagues.
