Athena swan Coffee Catch up

Tuesday 21st May at 10.30am in C222 BHF GCRC

In response to the recent culture survey and as a means of reconnecting again and connecting with new colleagues who have recently joined the SCMH, we are going to be holding a couple of coffee catch-up events throughout the year.  

All staff and students are invited and encouraged to attend for a blether and a catch-up over tea/coffee (biscuits will also be provided!).  This is an informal gathering where we just want to give people an opportunity to meet in person and see both familiar and new faces.

We hope to see you there!

Practice Ceilidh Dancing Session

Ahead of our EDI celebration ceilidh, we’re delighted that Dr Martin McBride will be running another ceilidh dancing session on Tuesday 21st May from 3:30-5pm in C222 of the BHF GCRC.  This is open to all staff and students.  There is no need to register in advance.  Please come along so you know your St Bernard’s Waltz from your Strip the Willow and have some fun at the same time. 

EDI Celebration Ceilidh

We’re delighted to open ticket sales for the EDI Celebration Ceilidh which will be held on Friday 31st May 2024 in the Debates Chamber of the GUU from 7pm – 1am (see attached poster).  Tickets will be £15 per person which includes a hot meal (served at 7:30pm).  And we’re excited to have music and dancing from “The Midgierakers” (I’m sure you will recognise a few of the band members!).  Ticket prices have been subsidised through generous support from both the MVLS EDI committee and a contribution from SCMH funds and we thank them for this funding.  You are more than welcome to bring along a partner or friend and can purchase up to 2 tickets per person.  If you want to come along then please complete the form https://forms.office.com/e/rTaZi2SYMj on which you will need to decide which meal option you would like to have and indicate any special dietary needs. 

You can pay for your ticket by dropping the money past either Lorraine Work (C443 BHF GCRC), Scott (C437 BHF GCRC), Alison Reid (C209 BHFGCRC) or John McAbney (L440 SJBB, formerly WMB).  Please note, your place is not secured until payment received and the form is completed.  We will leave ticket sales open until Wed 22nd May 2024 (we need to let GUU catering needs at this stage) but no tickets can be purchased on the night, they must be purchased ahead of time.  We hope to have a great evening with colleagues and friends from across SCMH and we look forward to seeing you there!  Another ceilidh dancing masterclass will be held between now and then so people have a chance to practice their dance skills ahead of time but there will be a caller on the night to guide everyone through anyway.
