A new video made in collaboration with the Respect Always working group, JMSU and the Diversity and Inclusion team, is live on the digital screens, as we welcome staff and students back to campus.
The film content is part of a Respect Always campaign to celebrate and highlight the importance of having patience and respect for all the voices and accents, here at LJMU.
The video includes some familiar faces from our LJMU community, as they introduce themselves and where they are from.
As a university with over 28,000 students and 2,600 staff members, our community is made up of individuals from over 100 countries and our diversity is something we celebrate. The video not only highlights this but to have patience and respect for every individual at the university.
What is Respect Always?
The video has been created by the Respect Always working group. At LJMU, above all else, we want everyone who studies here, works here and works with us, to feel respected, and to respect others.
Respect, Always is a collaboration between LJMU and JMSU which aims to get to the heart of what ‘respect’ means to us all as individuals and to collectively recognise this across the University.
Add your name pronunciation
All staff and students can add the pronunciation of their own name to the bottom of their emails, as well as click on others' recordings to hear how to pronounce their name.
The software’s aim is to take away the potential ‘awkwardness’ or ‘fear’ of getting the pronunciation of someone’s name wrong and is a tool for greater allyship.
