In 2021, we initiated the Black and Beyond: Celebrating Black Excellence campaign. This campaign, a collaborative effort between students and staff, was inspired by Khadija Owusu and Lucrece Wasolua-Kibeti, who were final year medical students at the time. They were eager to witness increased recognition and celebration of our Black staff and students at St George's, University of London acknowledging the importance of having role models with Black backgrounds. The campaign's development received support from various members of our staff and student community. 

Black and Beyond: Celebrating Black Excellence aims to spotlight the accomplishments and contributions of our Black staff and students. It features profiles of individuals from within the St. George's community. By celebrating excellence, the campaign seeks to acknowledge the diverse contributions these individuals have made, whether in academia or other areas, and how their achievements can inspire us all.

The campaign has extended beyond its initial launch, and we add to our growing list of Black role models each year. We invite you to explore the outstanding contributions made thus far and encourage you to nominate someone you believe should be featured in our campaign.

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.

 To do this, please complete the form below. We'll then publish a number of articles on the University website telling the stories of participants of the campaign. These may also be shared across other communications channels such as social media or staff/student newsletters.
