EDI Soapbox

Welcome to the EDI Soapbox 2022!

As part of our Equality eek 2022 programme we ran an EDI Soapbox Event and we were delighted to see so many of our colleagues and friends on the day, joining us in a gathering and celebration of al the work currently being undertaken in UCC tobring about a fairer and more inclusive work and study space.  We were sorry that some scheduled presentations could not go ahead due to unforeseen circumstances but there will doubtlee be another such opportunity.

Each presenter was required to share a single slide with a summary of 

  • Overview
  • Objectives
  • Outcomes
  • Partners (if applicable)
  • Image related to the project

And then share a three minute (timed) presentation on the day to colleagues. The aim of the event was to share knowledge of EDI initiatives across the university and it was a bit of fun too!

Here are the slides presented on the day with the running order below.
