Speaking following a meeting between Sinn Féin representatives and Queen’s University on equality issues, Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald said:
“We had a positive discussion on the university’s new draft Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy; and on issues such as visibility of the Irish Language.
“It is welcome to see the progress and positive steps towards inclusion in terms of accessibility for those with disabilities, linguistic diversity and support for minority groups.
“University campuses should be welcoming to all and reflective of society, their students and staff.
“Queen’s has extended the consultation on its Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy for 12 weeks until 9th August.
“This gives people the opportunity to add their views to the previous consultation.”
