Diversity Speaks: Interactive Group Coaching Taster Session with Q&A

Queen Mary is offering students the opportunity to take part in a group coaching project run by the University Mentoring Organisation (UMO).  


We are offering a free taster session to students – refreshments included!

Date: Tuesday 7 March 

Location: LG1 – G.O. Jones, Mile End campus

Time: 2:30-4pm 

Who it is aimed at: Students who identify from a diverse ethnic background.

What is involved: Tackling difficulties in university related to your race, ethnicity and culture.

What is the benefit for students:  

  • An opportunity to work as a group with a specialist coach from a similar ethnic background, to explore barriers you have experienced including race, identity etc. 
  • A safe and validating space to build a sense of belonging and allyship to promote self-acceptance and a positive self-image.
  • A specific time and place where you can refocus and trust you will be heard, developing skills to better manage the structural bias of academia.
  • To rebuild your self-confidence, unlock your talents, build resilience and proactively be motivated to create change.

Come to the taster session to find out: 

1) What group coaching is 

2) What you will gain from it 

3) How to explore positive ways of managing barriers 

Led by UMO Coaches; catering will be provided.
