It is LGBT History Month currently, and the following events are taking place:
- Launch party for the LGBT issue of The Edge
- Pride screening on 15/2
Hopefully this will set a precedent for other awareness months/ days, as more has been done for this than has ever been done before and now can hopefully be replicated.
There is a subtitled screening of Interstellar, and that has now gone out on the SUSU comms channels.
The Equality Impact Assessment work has been passed and they are now discussing how this can be taken forward. The first area of focus is going to be students with disabilities, particularly tying in with the work on the university side on the Disabled Student Allowance, and also access issues.
International Women's Week is currently being planned with FemSoc and Women In Business. It is in the SUSU elections voting week (9th-13th March). Sam has been talking to the Student Groups representative regarding getting faith societies involved.
