Hi, I'm Brianna and I'm your Member for Gender Equality for the 2017-2018 academic year!

Hi! I’m Brianna, a fourth year International Relations and Psychology student, and I’m proud to be your Member for Gender Equality for this year! I sit on the Student’s Representatives Council, and my job is particularly flexible with regard to remit. Basically, I can work on anything or with anyone as long as it pertains to gender equality. In the past, this role has led to great projects like Got Consent, which are now their own subcommittee associated with the University, so I have some pretty big shoes to fill! I have some achievable goals already set out for myself, but no big project per se, so your thoughts, questions, and concerns are immensely appreciated.

On that note, I’m usually a very approachable person (after 10 am, though - I’m definitely not a morning person so you’ll have to forgive me if before 10 I’m a little bit not alive…), so whether you’re just a person with a problem and you think I’m the right person to ask, or you’re a member of a committee and you think I can help you achieve something, please, please, please come and talk to me! I’m planning on holding office hours once a week in the Union once I know my class schedules, but if not always feel free to shoot me an email at bhhc@st-andrews.ac.uk!

I want to emphasise that I am a particularly empathetic person and while I know that perceived gender constructs affect us all, I would encourage you to eschew them and reach out to me if you have concerns, no matter your gender. There isn’t a single person on this planet that isn’t affected by gender inequality, and I deeply wish to help you in any way that I can. If I can’t help you with your problem, I will do everything I can to make sure you feel comfortable and supported while finding you someone who can answer your question(s), so please don’t hesitate to approach me with any gender-related issue!
