Diversity Festival 2022 – dates confirmed


December 14th, 2021

The university is pleased to confirm that we are running our next diversity festival between Monday 13 June and Friday 24 June 2022 for UK based staff, students and alumni.  

This follows on from our successful 2021 festival which attracted more than 1,500 attendees to our live events and over 5,000 visitors to our diversity festival web hub. 

The 2022 festival will continue to ‘embrace and celebrate difference’ and will comprise celebratory activities, keynote and local events and pre-recorded content. 

Would you like to showcase your area of expertise or interest in EDI? 

We are now inviting staff and students to propose topics for locally hosted events for our 2022 diversity festival. 

In 2021, staff and students delivered local events on topics ranging from ‘women of faith’ to ‘diverse careers in STEM’ and ‘Imposter syndrome vs your potential’. 

How do I submit a proposal? 

Please ask to join our diversity festival local events team to access our proposal form and complete one form for each proposal. It takes approximately 5 minutes to complete the form.  

Local event proposals submitted by Friday 18 February 2022 will be promoted centrally from April 2022 onwards. Proposals submitted after this date will still be accepted and promoted via the diversity festival web hub once we have all relevant details.

Local events will be delivered between Tuesday 14 June and Friday 24 June 2022.

If you have any questions, please post them in the 2022 festival channel chat in our diversity festival local events team.
