GEORGINA WILSON-COUSINS

Twice elected Chair of Civil Engineering Society (CivSoc) and Mature Students' Society (MatureSoc). 

In previous appointments, implemented inclusive and diverse opportunities for students who are:

-BAME 

-Muslim

-the first person in their family to attend university

 -from atypical academic backgrounds before Brunel.

Through seeking and organising speakers, competitions and visitations focusing on building realistic bridges for the development of aforementioned groups.

At Brunel I have expericend personal and community struggles as a disabled student. Thus, developed to become an advocate by nature and listener by nurture. 

 

More needs to be done to support non-visible disabilities !

More needs to be done to reduce apply inclusive solutions !

More needs to be done to reduce the discrimination and hardships experienced by disabled students!

 

I will achieve this by influencing policymakers: 

-to listen

-to make practical changes in methods for complaints

-to stop using disabled accommodation for non-disabled students.

-to stop departrments delaying inclusive solution applications by applying time scales connected with Extenuating Circumstances
