St Hilda's alumna, Lamis Hamdi, wins a Vice-Chancellor’s Diversity Award

23rd May 2020

The Vice-Chancellor’s Diversity Awards celebrate the strength of commitment to equality and diversity at Oxford and recognise individuals and groups who have inspired others, demonstrated leadership and made a difference to equality and diversity in the University’s working, learning and social environment.

We are very proud that our alumna, Lamis Hamdi (Medicine, 2016), has won the award for Champion or Role Model. Many congratulations to Lamis, whose commitment to equality and diversity is inspiring.

'Lamis has been committed to equality and diversity from the start of her time at Oxford. As Chair of Oxford SU’s Campaign for Racial Awareness and Equality (CRAE), she has raised awareness of a lack of inclusion for BME students through talks, speaker events and panels, and has organised social events, meetings and campaigns for students of colour. Lamis has also worked with the University to promote the voice and inclusion of BME staff and students, has been involved in the St Hilda’s Feminist Festival and is a peer supporter for BME students through the Peers of Colour scheme.'
