Join us July 21, 2016 for the next Education UK Alumni Network event at the British Consulate General New York.

The Education UK Alumni Network creates opportunities to engage UK universities and their graduates and to involve alumni in raising the profile of UK higher education.

Reconnect with your alma mater by meeting other alumni from your university, build your professional network and learn about other activities taking place to engage with UK alumni. The event will feature a panel discussion and a networking reception. Light refreshments will be provided.

Topic: Road to the olympics: champions for diversity in sports

All eyes are on Brazil this summer as over 10,000 top athletes from 207 nations compete for gold and glory in the 2016 Olympics.

With a record number of countries competing, the International is more convinced than ever of the positive role that sports can play in society to unite and to teach about respect and tolerance.

How can sports address greater societal divides at the global and local levels? What does a truly diverse sports community look like? As part of the Education UK Alumni Network, this event will explore how sports can be used as an agent for social change.
