We strive to make sure equality, diversity, and inclusion is embedded in everything we do as an SU. We want to ensure we represent all of our members, promote equal opportunities, and support all University of Worcester students during their time here.
Black History Month
Black History Month takes place every October and celebrates the culture, history, and achievements of African and Caribbean communities and their diaspora. Our society and culture has been enriched because of all those who have come to the UK to build their lives. Their contributions, as well as the contributions of their descendants, have had a profound and positive effect on all of us. Black History Month gives us all the opportunity to celebrate these contributions and honour the accomplishments of black Britons throughout our history.

Our Student Networks are student-led groups who exist to connect underrepresented areas of the student population, build communities, enhance diversity on campus, highlight current issues, and empower like-minded students to act collectively to bring about change and make a difference.
The Networks are representive bodies that can lead campaigns, hold forums, and organise social events. They provide a crucial student voice in the SU's decision making processes and send representatives to both Student Council and Welfare and Inclusion Council.

Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Working Group
We have set up an Equality, Diversity, and Inclusivity working group within the SU to look at how we can encourage and promote equality and equity within the organisation and at the University. We are analysing our data to look at how students engage with us and to identify the any gaps in engagement that we need to address.
Any organisational changes we make as a result of this, and the wider impact they will have, will be communicated to all of our members.
If you have any ideas on how we can support equality, diversity, and inclusion, please get in touch with us here. We'd love to hear from you.
