Celebrating multiple identities: The Birkbeck Staff Networks in conversation with author and campaigner, Sarah Hagger-Holt

Birkbeck has a range of staff diversity networks, created and maintained by members of staff to support their colleagues. We are delighted to invite you to our first joint event this Summer Term. This is a great opportunity to meet our Staff Networks. We are joined by author Sarah Hagger-Holt who will share valuable insight into successfully managing multiple identities with Senior Lecturer of Organisational Psychology Uracha Chatrakul Na Ayudhya and Astrea Project Support Coordinator Kayleigh Woods Harley chairing our Q&A.

You will also have the opportunity to meet with the Networks, find out about our missions and how to join.

We are looking forward to welcoming you!

 

To make this event inclusive and safe for everyone to share their views, we are adhering to the six principles of Building the Anti-racist Classroom and ask that all participants respect these principles.
