UEL’s ‘Many Voices’ reading group formed in 2016, led at that time by Dr Julie Botticello who worked within the School of HSB.

The group is now run by Anna Caffrey, Senior Lecturer within the School of HSB and Carol Hughes, Library and Learning.

On 4th December, we will be welcoming Dr Karen Lipsedge. Karen is also part of the Directorate for Student Achievement team at KU, where she works as a Senior Adviser for Teaching and Learning. Her portfolio includes, leading the Writing and Oral Skills (WOS) Project and the Kingston University Reading Group. She is also KU’s Chair of Race Equality Charter SAT and acts as an informal critical friend for several UK HEIs; giving advice and support with race equality work.​

Kingston University Reading Group was also created in 2016 as a means of facilitating discussion on culture and identity to promote race equality and enhancing the University’s work to embed EDI at the heart of the institution. The reading group provides a space to talk about race, using shared reading and discussion to promote cultural competency and cultural diversity.
