ECS Reader wins VC award for diversity contribution
Hugh Glaser, Reader in the School of Electronics and Computer Science, has been awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Award 2007 in recognition of his exceptional contribution to diversity issues across the University.
Hugh has been involved in the University’s equal opportunities and diversity strategies over the last 15 years, and was one of the first harassment contacts. Throughout this time he has served on the committees that have taken forward this important agenda across the University, and is currently a Diversity Trainer, helping to ensure that members of the University staff are aware of diversity issues that arise in the work context.
‘I am grateful to have been supported in this work by the School of Electronics and Computer Science,’ said Hugh. ‘I believe it’s vital that as an institution we create a climate which enables everyone to operate to the best of their potential. This is increasingly important as we welcome growing numbers of students and staff from different backgrounds, different cultures, and from many different countries.’
