Nominated for being the founder and organiser of the Gender Expression Fund, that is making a significant impact to the lives of our Trans student community here at Warwick. Through the provision of up to £50 funding towards gender affirming items, this project is helping improve the wellbeing of Trans people in our student community. Funded by Warwick Innovation Fund and supported by the SU/Rainbow Taskforce, on the strength of this project, two other universities are now interested in a similar fund.

The judging panel said:

This is a really important project for trans students and clearly has a significant impact on student lives. An original idea with evidence of strong impact across Warwick and beyond with two universities picking this up as best practice. From the feedback this has clearly been appreciated by the student body who have accessed this fund and it is great to see a very inclusive approach to providing support, and recognising difference. This is making an enormous difference already and is an exceptionally innovative intervention.

Through their role they developed Instagram and social media platforms for reaching wider students in Warwick and have promoted a campaign to raise the profile of the unheard Women of Colour’s voices in history.

The judging panel said:

We wanted to commend nominee for their work in reaching out to a wider student body via social media platforms and particularly in helping raise the profile of gender-based violence through this work, as this is an important focus for Warwick and a central part of what we are seeking to address with our Warwick principles
