About this Event

In January 2023, the University Funded Diversity and Inclusion introduced a programme to offer grants for research projects throughout the University. The goal of these initiatives is to combat discrimination and inequalities, promote diversity, raise awareness on related issues, and encourage best practices at the university. This upcoming event will mark the successful completion of these projects and highlight the outcomes and positive impact they have had.

This funding opportunity received great interest from the university, and applications were accessed by a judging panel consisting of Tina Purkis, Executive Director of HR, Professor Phil Vickerman, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Student Experience and Moni Akinsanya, Associate Director, Diversity and Inclusion. After careful consideration of all applications, the judging panel decided to fund the following projects:

  1. Helen Collins: Using the Gypsy, Traveller, Roma, Showmen and Boaters' (GTRSB) HE and Schools Pledge to increase Liverpool GTRSB into FE and HE.
  2. Denise Lee: Lean in Construction for Gender Equality.
  3. Elena Zaitseva: Understanding Barriers to Academic Achievement of Male Students from Low HE Participation Areas and Developing Institutional Interventions.
  4. Ceri Daniels: ‘Story Creators’ - A collaborative inclusion project for LJMU students and pupils in the Liverpool City Region (LCR) with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).
  5. Paula McNulty: ‘Intern to Work’ - A collaborative inclusion project for LJMU to partner with Liverpool City Council (LCC) to provide supported internships to students in the Liverpool City Region (LCR) with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).
  6. Dominique Walker: #BlackintheIvory.
  7. Amos Fatokun: Clues in the Cues - Chronicling and Contextualising Non-Western Socio-Cultural Norms for Improved Student Experience.
  8. Sarah Williams: You Can't Be What You Can't See.
  9. Simon Ward: The Experiences of Disabled Staff within a Higher Education Setting.

Come and join us in celebrating the dedication and effort put forth by the project leads and their teams during this event!
