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
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.
