World Cancer Day is a global initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). They aim to raise awareness, improve education and to catalyse personal, collective and government action. The theme for World Cancer Day is Close the Care Gap and it is a 3-year campaign with 2022 focusing on ‘Realising the problem’ and 2023 focusing on Uniting our voices and Taking Action’. The third year of this Close the Care Gap campaign is ‘Together, we Challenge those in Power’. From an equality, diversity and inclusion perspective, we know that there are still many health inequalities especially with minoritized and under representative groups in society. So, focusing on the theme of uniting our voices and taking action, we first need to know the who’s voices we are taking action for.
Every February we celebrate LGBTQIA+ History Month across the university and the UK.
As we celebrate International Day of Women and Girls in Science this February, I am struck by some of the gender equality problems women still face in STEM. The United Nations, who promote the event, say that even in 2023 women are still under-represented in fields such as engineering and computer science. And those female scientists who do persist, tend to have shorter, less well-paid careers and are often passed over for promotion.
The theme of the Holocaust Memorial Day this year looks at the role of ordinary people in The Holocaust. I write this through the lens of my Father’s experience as one of those rescued in the Kindertransport operation set up to rescue children from Nazi occupied Europe when brutal realities about what was happening to the Jews and other groups could no longer be ignored.
