All week: 8 Ways to Make Campus a More Inclusive Place Poster Campaign
We have many different people of different religious beliefs here on campus, respect them all!
Pronouns refer to whether a person likes to be referred to as she, he or they. If you’re not sure, ask someone what their pronouns are when talking to them
Start a conversation with an international student; find out about their culture and how it might be different or similar to ours.
Join an anti-hate speech campaign online, and learn how to stop hurtful and derogatory language against others.
Volunteer! It’s one of the best ways to step outside of your comfort zone and learn about the issues affecting different people in our society.
Don’t assume someone isn’t from Ireland just because of their skin colour.
Try to work offensive and derogatory terms out of your vocabulary.
We are not all the same and that’s a good thing; recognise and celebrate our diversity as staff, students and human beings
