NOTICES

'AuthentiCity’ -  for LBGT* students.

This year’s event will be held on Wednesday 21st June, 2017. AuthentiCity is supported by Stonewall and will give students direct contact with major firms including Aviva, BLP, JLL, J.P. Morgan, KPMG and M&G. The event aims to dispel the myth that gender or sexuality can put people at a disadvantage when looking for jobs, and is particularly suitable for those with career aspirations in Legal, Investment Banking, Professional Services, Fund Management, Insurance or Real Estate – or those who simply wish to explore what these industries have to offer. Our overall aim is to improve the way businesses view the LGBT* community.

Although AuthentiCity is predominantly an event for undergraduate students in the LGBT* community, we are allocating a number of places to sixth form students who may be interested in attending. I would therefore like to invite you to advertise this diversity-focused event to your sixth form students. We would love to have them at AuthentiCity and think that it will greatly benefit all those who come along.

In order to apply, you can send copies of CVs directly via our website https://authenticity-event.com/.

New Athens logins created

The login for each learner who wants to use eBooks and other resources has been sent to their college email address. If they have any queries, then please ask their RBL facilitator, a member of library staff, or contact me directly on 7288, jbailey@hackney.ac.uk

This login gives all college learners access to academic journals and news; eBooks; paid for resources such as ‘Issues Online’.

 

The logins should be the college network username and password but with ‘cch’  at the beginning. For example, if a college login is sstudent2 / Pass94 then the Athens login is cchsstudent2 / cchPass94
