Talk: Could You Lead a Protected Society?

Thursday 05 March 2020 6pm - 7pm C237, Curzon Building, City Centre Campus
Talk: Could You Lead a Protected Society?
Everything you need to know about standing for a Protected Society, from nominating yourself to writing a manifesto and more.


Protected Societies each represent a key demographic of BCU. They are entirely funded by your Students' Union to host events and activities to support their demographic, and they are regarded as the central source of representation within the Union. 

This year, Protected Societies have launched a host of initiatives: from planting over 200 trees at City South, to hosting the very first Trans Awareness Week on campus! Any student who is a full member of a Protected Society can stand to lead one. 

Protected Societies are as follows:

Disabled Students
Earth Society
Interfaith Society
International Society
LGBTQ+ Society
Mature Students
Parents & Carers
People of Colour
Postgraduate Society
Women's Society

At the session, your Vice President for Equity and Inclusion Zoe Baira will be joined by Protected Society Coordinator Harry Jones to explain the process: from writing a manifesto, to applying via the website, and how to get votes!

Just turn up.
