October is Black History Month. A month dedicated to recognising the outstanding contributions that individuals of Black heritage have made.

In light of this, we have launched a campaign Black and Beyond: Celebrating Black excellence.

This campaign is a student/staff collaboration and was prompted by our very own final year medical students, Khadija Owusu and Lucrece Wasolua-Kibeti, who were keen to see increased representation and celebration of our Black staff and students at St Georges, recognising the importance of role models from Black backgrounds. The development of the campaign has been supported by a range of staff and students.

Black and Beyond: Celebrating Black excellence aims to centre the contributions and achievements of our Black staff and students, featuring profiles of individuals from across our St George’s community. In celebrating excellence, the campaign aims to recognise the wide-ranging contributions these individuals have made in academia or beyond, and the different ways in which these achievements can inspire us.

This campaign will launch in October to celebrate Black History Month but the campaign aims to continue throughout the academic year as we recognise the importance of celebrating such individuals beyond this designated time period. It is also an opportunity for the institution to build a strong culture of allyship with the end goal of creating a truly inclusive environment for all.

Take a look at the phenomenal contributions so far or nominate someone who you think should be featured:

We are asking staff and students to nominate colleagues who inspire them as part of our campaign to celebrate our Black staff and students. We want to share their different experiences and the contributions they have made to St George’s.
