Last week, the London Campus hosted a very successful Cultural Day Event where our students showcased their cultures through dance, painting, music, drama and language. The event is a fantastic way to cultivate cultural awareness among our students, an important skill for those studying on the postgraduate Developing Global Management Competencies I module and the undergraduate Critical Organisational Analysis module.
It was a well-planned event organised by the module leader, Dr Elizabeth Achinewhu-Nworgu, with the support of the Student Union and the University. The event helped our students put the theory they were learning into practice, allowing for more understanding of working together in a culturally diverse environment such as the Northumbria University London Campus.
It was interesting to see so many students attend this event with their beautiful cultural and traditional costumes to display their talents, cultural beliefs, values, identities and of course, different foods. There was an amazing aroma around the London Campus as students shared food with each other.
All those participated were a great representation of their countries, and provided an amazing moment for the University, coming together in one spirit sharing our belief and identity.
The event was a moment of reflection and putting theory into practice on what our students have learnt in the classroom and the link to our expectations working with others, leadership and management in a global business environment.
We would also like to offer special thanks to both of our guest speakers, Queen Chioma Nworgu and Sabriul Islam, who volunteered to use their entrepreneurial experience to share their cultural and identity experiences with us.
Well done to all our students who participated, their wonderful performances celebrating our diversity and representing their cultures and identity made for an entertaining and enriching event.
