It is our great pleasure to give you a sneak preview of the delights on offer during our two-day conference on LGBT+ Inclusivity in HE this September.
Together with our colleagues from Cardiff University and the University of South Wales, we are working to bring you an innovative chance to engage with the future of education in Wales, in the UK, and across the world.
We have confirmed the following speakers:
Professor Cara Aitchison,President & Vice-Chancellor & Professor of Geography & Cultural Economy, Cardiff Metropolitan University, will offer the Keynote Address.
Sian James, former MP, will offer a plenary discussing her role in past and present politics, and referring to excerpts from the film Pride, fully locating our conference in the heartland of Welsh political activism
Professor Martin Stringer, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Swansea University, will offer a plenary and will also chair our closing debate on Intersectionality: Reconciling Faith, Belief and Religion with LGBT+ Equality.
The amazing and talented Bronwen Lewis, musician, (featured in the film Pride) will provide the entertainment for our conference dinner.
There will be a range of speakers, including those providing practical insight into improving inclusivity across the HE landscape, and bringing their experience and research to you.
Workshops will also address key issues of promoting inclusion and improving the student experience.
So come and join us at the beach for two days of networking, learning, sharing and fun, demonstrating our commitment to an inclusive future.
with very best wishes
