Organiser of Engaging for Success

The 18th University of Chester Diversity Festival takes place from 27th February - 10th March 2023. The theme, ‘Action for Change’, focuses on the actions we can all take to make meaningful changes to inclusion and belonging. Participants will be inspired by our diverse range of speakers, all of whom have really taken action for change – however big or small. There are a great range of excellent speakers and events. With a mix of face to face and hybrid events focussing on many aspects of equality, diversity, inclusion and belonging and open to the University staff, students and external visitors, there really is something for everyone!
