EDI Poster Competition
As part of Godalming College’s commitment to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI), we would like to create EDI posters throughout the college to put up in each classroom and public space. We thought it would be a good idea to allow you, as students, to take ownership of how you perceive EDI at Godalming. The information required for the poster has been given to you but apart from this, you have complete free rein to create an A4 colour poster. A suggestion could be making the letters ‘EDI’ stand out for the poster; this could be a core structural element. Due to the fact that the Students’ Union’s Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Officer changes each year, we would like enough space so that we could place a printed sticky label of the new student’s name and photograph for each new year.
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
Adding VALUE to LEARNING
What is VALUE?
We believe that VALUE is:
- Value each individual person based on their contributions to the college.
- Appreciation – appreciate the diversity of different student populations at the college learning from others’ cultural traditions and consider why different groups of people have different wants and needs.
- Liberation – ultimately, everybody should have the freedom to be who they are.
- Understanding – through educating yourself about how different groups of people have been treated and the plight that many still have to face on a daily basis.
- Esteem – respect others having learnt about their experiences; respect promotes positive mental health gained from a sense of self-worth.
