Race and Equality Network

This network is a collective of staff and students based in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Glasgow who are people of colour (POCs) or their allies who hold shared values of inclusion, representation, and diversity. The goal of the network is to provide a safe space to discuss issues such as systemic racism in Psychology, and what it is like being a person of colour in our School. The network aims to highlight issues, achievements, offer mentorship, and to educate staff and students to provide a representative and inclusive learning and working experience for all.

The network also provides people with lived experience of poor representation to discuss and collaborate on opportunities to diversify and decolonise the Psychology curriculum and engage in scholarship around this area.

Neurodiversity Network

Founded by the School of Psychology and Neuroscience’s Dr Chiara Horlin and Dr Elliot Spaeth of the Academic Development Service, their mission is to provide awareness, representation, and promote inclusion of neurodiversity in higher education. The Network is a collective of interdisciplinary staff and students with lived experience of neurodiversity who endeavour to share resources, information and research about neurodiversity to the University community and beyond. They particularly wish to provide opportunities to co-collaborate with neurodivergent staff and students (current and prospective), as well as connecting with community stakeholders, and both the global neurodiversity movement and higher education community.
