#ItooamCardiff comes to the Glamorgan Building
11 October 2017
The #ItooamCardiff campaign was recently on display in the Glamorgan Building.
The campaign of 13 student images is on a journey around the University, with an aim to create a positive narrative around race and ethnicity. Originally a social media campaign developed at Harvard University, it has since been reproduced by other universities across the UK.
The campaign aims to give black and minority ethnic (BME) students a voice, prompt discussion and engagement on social media, and raise awareness among staff and students of the types of issues and comments faced by black and minority ethnic students.
This exhibition represents an authentic BME experience, instilling pride and identity, and giving underrepresented groups a voice within Cardiff University.
#ItooamCardiff demonstrates how difference manifests itself in everyday situations, processes and behaviours.

The campaign was organised by Susan Cousins, Equality and Diversity Project Oficer, with Abyd Quinn-Aziz, Senior Lecturer at the School of Social Sciences, Bethan John, Terence Burnett, Andrew Smith and Rob Williams.
