Newbold Diversity Centre

Celebrating differences together.

What is the Diversity Centre?

The Diversity Centre at Newbold College of Higher Education creates and hosts lectures and conferences which explore ideas about human differences in an open, inclusive environment.

It is dedicated to creating a forum where majority and minority groups can discuss, reconcile and celebrate their differences in a safe space.

It aims not to emphasise differences at the expense of commonality, but emphasises what we have in common and balances that with what makes us unique.

How you can attend:

For the 2021 Spring Semester, the Diversity Centre lectures will take place on Zoom Webinar, which you can register to attend.

The lectures will take place on a Tuesday night at 19:30 (BST) online.
