Catherine Purkiss, Senior Teaching Fellow, Department of Management Science and Innovation, UCL

17:00 – 19:00
Gusttave Tuck Lecture Theatre, Wilkins Building, Gower Street

There will be a screening of the short TEDx talk by Catherine Purkiss on the effect of homophobia on the mental health of young LGBT+ people; and also how can it be tackled.

We will then have a panel discussion, with panelists James Taylor, Stonewall’s Head of Policy, a representative of UCL Student Psychological Service and Catherine Purkiss. Representatives from other charities working in the field have also been invited to contribute. There will be an opportunity for questions from the floor as part of this discussion.

The film and panel discussion will be followed by a drinks reception, at the same venue. An excellent opportunity to network with LGBT+ people across staff/student divisions and also from other London Universities.

Non LGBT+ staff and students are also very welcome.

This event is free, but small donations to Stonewall are encouraged; information about the charity will be available at the event.

Open to
All students
