Amara Okoye

Womens' Officer

Hello all and welcome to my first ever blog as your Women’s Officer.

I am Amara Okoye, your Women’s Officer for the 2020/21 academic year. 

2020 has been a very hectic and shocking year for all. COVID-19 has turned the world as we know it upside down, as well as reveal problems within our society. To all now studying and working during a pandemic, I completely understand the challenges, difficulties and uncertainty this brings. Hopefully, within my role as Women’s Officer, I can provide events, (either individually run or through collaborations) or signpost others’ events to serve as a healthy distraction. 

I would like to introduce my plans for this academic year: 

1. Women of Warwick 

My first and biggest plan is to launch the Women of Warwick Campaign - the aim of this campaign is to create various events and opportunities for different types of women on our campus. These events aim to ensure all women (especially our Black, Muslim, Queer and Trans and other marginalised women) on our campus feel represented and catered to by their Women’s Officer. More details regarding this and relevant events will be out soon.
 

  1. Better communication and relationship between the Women’s Officer and Women Societies 

In line with the plans of our former Societies Officer and now President of the SU, Luke Mepham, for creating associations - I hope to create a women’s association which allows newsletters which other societies can collaborate on in order to send out to all women on campus - the best way to advertise and highlight the amazing work of our societies! Additionally, setting up liaison officers who will represent their society and help myself and future Women’s Officers to run united campaigns.
 

  1. Run a range of events for International Women’s Week

More details regarding this will be out soon. 

 

HELP & SUPPORT

Finally, I would like to take this moment to signpost a range of services for women on campus and highlight the amazing leaflet created by ‘It Happens Here’ (IHH) with the liberation societies on campus.
