UCL School of Pharmacy Staff and Students at the UCL Inclusion Awards 2022

9 August 2022

Congratulations to Christine Madla and Dr Sudaxshina Murdan for receiving an award and being shortlisted at the UCL Inclusion Awards 2022.

Over 70 nominations were received for UCL’s annual Inclusion Awards which recognises work or contributions that individuals or teams make to progression equality, diversity or inclusion practices within the institution. 

There are 6 different award categories enabling both staff and students to be nominated. From these nominations, the UCL panel chose 3 people or teams to be shortlisted for each category. 

Christine Madla was shortlisted and won the Sarah Guise – Catalyst for Change Award for her work towards health equity and championing for the inclusion of sex and gender in pharmaceutical research and practice. Christine founded Sex in Science in January 2021 and has since been invited to speak nationally and internationally to key stakeholders across academic institutions, industry and clinicians on how to reduce the sex and gender research gap.

Dr Sudaxshina Murdan was shortlisted for a Staff Equality Network / EDI Group Member of the Year Award for her contribution at the UCL School of Pharmacy. Under Sudax’s leadership, the School’s Community Action Group has organised numerous face-to-face, online or hybrid events to enable colleagues to meet, support and learn from one another’s lived experiences, and discuss ‘elephant in the room’ topics. 

Congratulations to Christine and Sudax for their efforts in advocating EDI practices in research and beyond, and to Mine Orlu and Catherine Tuleu for leading EDI at the UCL School of Pharmacy.
