About AMDP Inspire Series

As part of its Academic, Multicultural and Diversity Programme (AMDP), Kingston University is holding a series of free inspirational talks open to the public.

Please book quickly as places are limited. These speakers are high profile and this is a fantastic chance to hear, first hand, about their experiences.

This initiative for Kingston University students aims to build:

  • strong awareness of how culture and experiences shape perceptions of self and others;
  • world views; and
  • structured thinking skills as an introduction to critical thinking, around the issues of diversity.

As research shows these are all skills which are extremely valued by employers – especially in a global city like London.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
