These four officers work to ensure that the voices of minority groups are heard on campus. They each run campaigns and themed weeks designed to raise awareness of issues affecting Warwick students’ lives.
Disabled Students' Officer
Ethnic Minorities Officer
In my coming year as the SU’s Ethnic Minorities Officer I am looking to take proactive steps to protect ethnic minorities from harassment, by challenging both overt and more insidious forms racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia on campus. I aim to do this by creating clearer avenues for reporting such incidents whilst also working with cultural societies to increase the number of ethnic minority led talks and events, pushing for real diversity and inclusion as opposed to mere visibility of BME students on campus.
I’m committed to reshaping the curriculum to fit the voices of ethnic minority students into academic structures. Ensuring, where possible, that is no module that solely consists of the contributions of white academics/scholars so as to move towards more globalised and inclusive degree programmes.
In addition, I’ll be working on a BME careers day, to connect BME students with employers to help tackle the attainment gap and inclusion in employment. Wellbeing is really important to me so I’ll be working with the SU, departments, and counselling services to ensure that ethnic minority students get the right levels of support and do not feel isolated.
