Transgender Day of Visibility 2020


Action: Planned, prepared, and ran a virtual #TDOV2020 with the ever wonderful Leighton Gray. Due to the recent pandemic our day of events had to be cancelled but information was swiftly moved online.


Aim: To raise awareness of the trans community, to highlight the contributions that trans people make to society and the efforts that we still have to make towards a better world for our trans friends. To see Leighton’s hard work shared and appreciated online.


Achievement: I facilitated an Instagram Live with Noah Halpin, the wonderful trans activist from This Is Me - Ireland and chatted about Trans Day of Visibility & some of our trans icons. I shared some information on trans content creators and organisations that support the trans and wider LGBTQ+ community on the @UCDSU Instagram account for the day.



Mind, Body, and Soul - Online!


Action: Keleigh and I shuffled the plans for Mind, Body, and Soul to run the event online. We gave out some wonderful prizes and had a lot of laughs with your submissions!


Aim: To help guide students with resources about self care at this difficult time. To reassure students that I am still working full time behind a screen and here to support them.


Achievement: The week was a success! Thank you to all participants and supporters.


Crossover preparation


Action: I’ve begun organising my portion of crossover training with our office manager.


Aim: To ensure that the next sabbatical team are given as much useful and relevant training and support with the beginning of their term and that I can pass on as much knowledge as possible.


Achievement: Work has begun and will continue over the coming weeks and months. Best of luck to all candidates running for Exec elections this term!


Remote Student Supports
