You’re invited to the Making a Difference Awards 2020

Thursday 7 May 5:45pm-7:15pm

Everyone is invited to join Chancellor Lemn Sissay, President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell and other senior staff live online for the University of Manchester’s Making a Difference Awards for Social Responsibility. 

Now more than ever we can see how universities are making a real difference to lives of people around the world. We’d like to bring our whole University community together for this live event to celebrate the wide range of contributions we are making to society and the environment.  

Whether you are a member of staff, a current or prospective student, alumnus or friend interested in our impact, this annual celebration will be bigger than ever this year due to social distancing and the need for an online event. From reducing plastic waste to improving the outcomes of those with serious health conditions, we will recognise the impact that our staff, students, alumni and external partners are having on the wellbeing of our communities and wider society.
