Thais RamdaniHello! My name is Thais Ramdani, I am a third year psychology student running to be your next Gender Equality Officer.
I want to assist with the University’s work on gender equality, including the representation and rights of transgender and non-binary students, following the new Athena SWAN guidelines.
I have been involved with the SRC for two years: twice a Freshers’ Helper and an active member of the PR team. Furthermore, as the women’s officer of GULGBTQ+, I have been able to work on both women’s and transgender/non-binary issues. If elected, I will:
• Assist GULGTBQ+ with getting schools and colleges to take part in the Pronoun Pledge.
• Ensure that staff are aware of the services available for students who would wish to change their name and pronouns.
• Continue to work towards a bigger International Women’s Week, encouraging societies to take part and organise events.
• Modify the Equality and Diversity training taken by staff and Freshers’ Helper to more accurately include transgender/non-binary information.
Gender is not binary; it is a spectrum. And it is time we treat it as such. Thank you for reading and I hope you will vote for me as your Gender Equality Officer.
