Queen's wins prestigious national award for 'Best Race Initiative'

September 2020

The award, which recognises the work and impact of the iRISE staff network, was announced at the 2020 Legal Island Equality and Diversity Awards ceremony held virtually on Wednesday 9 September. The ceremony can be viewed here.

Barry Phillips, Legal Island CEO, commented on Queen’s award submission:

“The Legal Island Awards Judging Panel were particularly impressed by the range of race initiatives now going on at Queen’s University. It noted that the university actively contributed to Black History Month including a range of musical performances, academic discussions and speeches, art exhibitions, panels on intersectionality and gender diversity and film screenings at the QFT.  The development of iRISE is a very positive initiative which looks set to thrive in the future.”
