St Edmund Hall warmly invites you to join us for our In Conversation series, where we reflect on the contributions of an expert in their field, and how we can learn further from their insights.
Jacqui Gitau is an activist passionate about family wellbeing, particularly the migrant family. She is a parenting strategist and a co-founder and director of AFiUK. Jacqui holds a first degree in Community Family Development and a Masters degree in Childhood Studies.
AFiUK (African Families in the UK) is an organisation set up to serve the interests of African and other ethnic minority families where the parents were born and educated overseas, while their children have been born in the UK, often creating a clash of cultural identities for all concerned. AFiUK supports a local youth club, homework and tutoring schemes, maternity support groups, and cultural mixing events such as culinary sharing and cross-cultural parenting training.
The evening will consist of a Q&A between Jacqui Gitau and St Edmund Hall’s EDI Fellow, Steve Smith, followed by questions from the audience. All are welcome to attend – JCR, MCR, SCR, staff and members of the public and university. Booking not required.
