The Equality and Diversity (E and D) Team are pleased to launch the Diversity calendar for 2012.
This is the fourth calendar designed and published by the E and D team, with the previous years being well received.
The Diversity Calendar has been produced for staff and students as a helpful resource in terms of academic and staff planning around religious festivals and holidays. It is also hoped that it will help raise awareness of equality and diversity and general well-being issues.
The calendar lists national events but has a particular focus on events relating to equality and diversity which are running in the Manchester and North West region. It is available for download on our website as a pdf file http://www.mmu.ac.uk/humanresources/equalities/pdf/diversity_calendar_2012.pdf but there will be regular monthly updates on our website listing more events as they are organised and finalised by local organisations. If you have anything relevant you would like listing please send it to email@example.com
We have a limited amount of hard copies, but if you would like to receive one please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you will find the calendar to be a useful resource.

The Institute of Physics presents:
Professor Allan D Boardman: Invisibility cloaks emerge from a strange new metamaterial world
John Dalton Buildings, Manchester Metropolitan University, Oxford Road, Manchester M15 6BH
Wednesday, January 25, 2011, 6.30pm.
This lecture by Allan D Boardman, University of Salford, begins with a new look at elementary optics and the adoption of the usual definition of refractive index. It then moves on to a magical world of photonic metamaterials that lead directly to invisibility cloaking. The latter not only involves hiding objects but hiding events as well, making possible the covert interruption of non-interruptible computers and creating the illusion of a Star Trek transporter
ALL WELCOME! No booking required Refreshments from 6.00 p.m.
