Diversity at UC – I pledge to…

Diversity Fest 2019 is coming to an end this week. See the last events and activities happening this week here>

As part of Diversity Fest we have been asking students about what makes a diverse community and how we can all contribute to making UC a more inclusive community.

In this video UCSA Postgrad Rep Katie Mills got out and about to find out what diversity looks like to different people and what we can do to be more accepting other’s points of view.

Join the conversation – we want to hear from as many of you as possible, if you missed the chance to share your thoughts with Katie please include them in the comments below.
