Congratulations to all the winners from the Oxford SU Student Awards Evening. We had hundreds of nominations celebrating the great work students have done in their communities improving student life in Oxford and beyond. Thank you to everyone in attendance and to everyone who helped put the event together!
Never Too Small Award – Anna Gilchrist
Congratulations to Anna Gilchrist on winning the Never Too Small award. Sometimes, it’s the small things that go a long way, and that’s what led Anna’s friends to nominate her for this award. Anna is someone who's always making lunch for her friends when she knew they were too stressed to do this themselves. As well as this, Anna has always been there for people. Whether this is walking friends' home, grabbing milk if they run out or just being open to talk when life is stressful.
Race Equality Award – Josephine Agyeman-Duah
Congratulations to Josephine Agyeman-Duah on winning this year’s Race Equality award. This award recognises an individual who has been involved in fighting racism at Oxford. Josephine is an inspiring leader who has achieved outstanding results within Oxford and beyond. As the first GCR Black Student’s Representative, she established the Black Students’ Society (more info can be found here) and spear-headed a new library collection on self-education on racism.
Josephine went on to establish a black mentorship programme in 2021 to support student’s career progression by mapping them with experienced black professionals. Josephine succeeded in getting her college, Green Templeton College, to support Black History Month by flying the “DifferentEqual” flag for the first time.
