Diversity Matters Uni Society

Are you a student at University or College interested in setting up a ‘Student’s Union’ Society which promotes diversity, representation and equality?… Then running a Diversity Matters Society could be the platform you need!

We’ll offer you the support, training and our expertise needed organising events and workshops, plus you’ll be part of the Diversity Matters network!

We launched the Diversity Matters Uni Society in 2016 with societies in Ghana and the UK!

Diversity Matters GIJ is run by Ghana Institute of Journalism students to form a central hub on discussing matters of Pan-Africanism in the Arts and Media, and wider society in general. The DM GIJ society is the latest branch of Diversity Matters student-lead initiatives, with the UN IDPAD (International Decade of People of African Descent) 2015-2024 part of the discourse.

Student campaigns are fundamental grassroots movements in creating systematic change within universities and beyond!  Campaigning can be an exciting and rewarding experience – and your Students’ Union is there to support you! So why not start a Diversity Matters Society at your university and be part of a supportive network championing diversity in the learning environment?! Most Students’ Unions offer grants to help you set up and promote your society. PLUS, you’ll have the support of a wider team outside your university! Email kai@diversity-matters.org.uk for more info on representing Diversity Matters at your university!



Statistics show that BAME students are most likely to under-achieve than their white peers. UK-based Diversity Matters Societies aims to bridge the gap in lack of representation for such students through events with a strong essence of self-empowerment. If you’d like to support us by sponsoring our society to help engage more Black and Minority ethnic students by; financial support towards organising events,inviting motivational guest speakers, peer mentoring, local trips, and more, please email Kai Lutterodt kai@diversity-matters.org.uk

Diversity Matters Society is open to all students regardless of ethnicity, sexuality and gender. We operate a safe space policy.
