Diversity Month February 2013: call for speakers

17 October 2012

UCL is currently calling for speakers to showcase their research as part of Diversity Month in February 2013.

The deadline for expressions of interest is the 3 December 2012.


Diversity Month takes place every February and aims to raise awareness and engagement with equalities and diversity issues at UCL. The events aspire to stimulate debate and showcase UCL and other relevant research.

Each year Diversity Month events have grown in popularity and last year the majority were well attended by staff and students from across the University. Last year's programme can be found here: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/hr/equalities/diversity_month2012.php

Next year's Diversity Month theme will be based on UCL's Grand Challenge of Intercultural Interaction. This is an institution-wide programme to examine the causes and features of social and cultural diversity, assess their implications, and devise new ways to think about them.

Any member of staff is welcome to submit a proposal for a Diversity Month event. Please contact Sonal Bharadva s.bharadva@ucl.ac.uk to find out more.
