NUE Awards 2018

Diversity & Inclusion

The theme for the 2018 Awards naturally formed when all speakers mentioned the prevalence of diversity and inclusion in the undergraduate industry this year. 

Messages of equal opportunity,  understanding and accepting individual circumstances and encouraging students to believe in themselves were echoed throughout the day/evening. 

In true NUE Awards style, Ade was asked to leave us with an inspirational quote:

We are all super heroes- it just takes time and courage to find our inner super strengths. So never stop believing in yourself and never ever give up!

Ade Adepitan
