How I will do this! I currently work at the DSU Venue as a supervisor alongside staff members that book and organise events and will try to use this role to ensure students are represented fairly in relation to their gender. My academic studies in Criminology have a large focus on Diversity, Values and Ethics, and a discrimination and oppression, this includes issues relating to gender. I will use this knowledge to ensure that students are fairly treated and represented. My work with young people has provided me with experience dealing with sensitive issued and prepared me and given me relevant skills to approach and resolve these types of situations; it has also given me experience dealing with confidentiality. Running a society and organising charity and similar events has also given me experience in campaigning and promoting change.
