Well done to Thanet College in Essex for recognizing that marking International Men’s Day on Saturday 19th November demonstrates its commitment to equality.
In July this year the college published a report on its duty, as a public sector body, to promote equality and diversity.
The college is predominantly female with men accounting for 45% of the student population and 33% of the staff.
It encourages students to participate in a range of diversity and themed events which help to raise awareness and promote tolerance and understanding of different communities.
This year for the first time it is marking International Men’s Day and has highlighted the day to students and taken the opportunity to highlight male cancer awareness.
