Gift marks Glenda Lee's contribution to City and University

On October 14 Personnel Officer Gretel Stonebridge was invited to the Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service's Diversity Evening in Leicester to receive the gift of a crystal paperweight on behalf of Glenda Lee, the University's Head of Division, Equal Opportunities and Staff Welfare, who sadly died in August this year.

The evening celebrated the Service's commitment to diversity, and took the form of presentations and a buffet. There to receive gifts presented by Lieutenant Peter Roffey and David Webb were some of their partners who have helped deliver community initiatives.

"Glenda's gift was well deserved", said Gretel. "She worked hard, with energy and commitment, to promote equality and diversity objectives, both in the community and within the University. I promised that the gift will be passed on to Glenda's son to keep in memory of his mother."

University of Leicester academic The Rev Professor Richard Bonney was among those invited to speak. He gave a presentation on the research findings on recruitment of underrepresented groups. There was also a short presentation from the Assistant Chief Fire Officer on Diversity - The Way Forward.
