Our All Faiths and None (Staff Network) has recognized that we should organize an event to help raise awareness of the barriers to education that exist for Refugees and Asylum Seekers. This is our first Refugee Week event. External speakers include Cleo Lake (Lord Mayor of Bristol), and Negat Hussien (Refugee Women of Bristol). University staff speakers include: Jamie Darwen (Head of Regional and Community Partnerships), David Arjona (International Students' Officer), Lynsey-Ruth Mansfield (Borderlands). The event will be introduced by Valerie Russell-Emmott (Equality and Diversity Manager). This event will start with an informal vegetarian lunch. There will be an optional Campus Tour and the end of the event. Please contact us as spaces are limited.
