DVP INTERSECTIONALITY DUTIES: hide

Actively engage with the Liberation Networks

Engage with, and support, the Liberation Networks to assist in building and maintaining grassroot dialogue and action on marginalised experiences.

  • Listen to, and amplify, voices from Liberation Networks.
  • Empower Liberation Network Reps and support them in their roles.
    • Feed back issues or concerns to the named staff support for DVP Intersectionality.
  • Lead on campaigns that have significant input from, and impact upon, the experiences and lives of marginalised students.
 
Promote and implement an intersectional approach to decolonisation

Embody an intersectional approach to all liberation work; we do not live single-issue lives.

  • Work alongside the VP Welfare & Diversity, and Liberation Networks to promote and implement an intersectional approach to decolonisation and the demolition of structural barriers.
 
Address emergent themes and issues

Tackle and campaign on non-legal issues and emergent themes that come up through RiD, the anonymous reporting tool to raise instances of microaggressions and harm.

  • Use anonymous RiD reports to inform and evidence liberation campaigns.
  • Campaign on themes and trends that emerge from RiD and the Liberation Networks to reduce harm and deconstruct colonial praxis and behaviours.
 
Learn and teach intersectionality

Never speak on behalf of others; always raise their voices.

  • Educate yourself on intersectionality, and use intersectional praxis and your experience to teach others.
  • Do not be defensive.
  • Always amplify the voices of those at the margins; never speak over them.
 
Build structures of support and empowerment

Construct radical new structures of support and empowerment for students at the margins, building on the work of the DVP Liberation in calling out instances of structural discriminatory practice at the University and within the student body.

  • Using intersectional praxis, create structures of support that neutralise and eradicate harmful, discriminatory, and marginalising behaviours, cultures, and practices.
  • Strengthen supportive structures through working with the DVP Liberation and Liberation Network Reps, ensuring that reps learn and teach intersectionality.
  • Create and campaign for structures that empower and include marginalised students; help students create spaces that are by them and for them: nothing about us, without us.
