School of Health in Social Science


ConveRACEions is a project set up by PhD students in the School. In collaboration with Rosie Stenhouse, our Equality and Diversity Coordinator, this initiative aims to discuss and dismantle barriers to racial equality, as well as ways of moving forward.

With the support of the Social Responsibility and Sustainability Student Project Grant awarded to the ConveRACEions team, this year we are excited to invite monthly guest speakers to give one-hour-long talks on their research and/or experiences with racial and equality issues within (and outside) academia.

The events are open to students and staff across the University and are designed as a safe space to present thoughts and ideas. 

Up and coming

ConveRACEions will return in Semester 1 of the new academic year 21/22 with a new series of events. In the meantime, please feel welcome to take a look at previous events’ recordings and resources. If you would like to sign up for our mailing list to ensure you are among the first to know when our events will return, please contact us at






Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this group aims to create a space for all of us to learn, discuss, reflect, and actively work towards equality, diversity, and social justice within academia.
