Equality and Diversity
Hi everyone, I’m Niamh the 2021/22 Equality & Diversity Officer.
Last year I studied International Public Policy MSc after completing my Politics BA at QUB in 2020.
I’m from Birmingham and love all things activism. While I was a student, I was the President of Amnesty International QUB as well as a member of the Climate Action Group, Project Choice, Labour Students and the Politics Society.
Some of my priorities for the year ahead are:
LGBTQ+ students: I want to work with Queen’s Accommodation to establish support provisions for LGBTQ+ students. I want to work to train members of staff to better advocate and support these students as well as lobby for more LGBTQ+ safe spaces.
International students: I'd like to look at reforming the buddy scheme as well as how the university can better support international students' experience and welfare.
Sexual harassment and consent: I want to work on making students more aware of support services such as Report and Support. I want to work with feminist groups across campus to lobby on issues such as consent, street harassment and reproductive choice.
