Professor Heidi Safia Mirza, Emeritus Professor in Equalities Studies, UCL Institute of Education and Visiting Professor of Race, Faith and Culture at Goldsmiths College, will give her keynote address at the launch this week of the BAME/Staff of Colour and Kaleidoscope Networks. Professor Mirza is known for her pioneering intersectional research on race, gender and identity in education and has an international reputation for championing equality and human rights for Black and Muslim women through educational reform.
The BAME/ staff of Colour network aims to celebrate BAME Staff at the University of Kent and champion positive culture change, in order to promote the University as a welcoming place to work for BAME and International members of staff. The Kaleidoscope Network (KN) is a collective of students and staff of colour and ‘allies’ (supporters), established in response to a show of solidarity by non-BAME staff members expressing an interest to get involved in some way.
Hosted by the Kent Law School Centre for Sexuality, Race & Gender Justice (SeRGJ), the event takes place in the Kent Law School Moot Chamber, Wigoder Building on Wednesday 2 October 2019 commencing at 5pm with a drinks reception, followed by Professor Mirza’s keynote address.
