Hello, 


   My name is Amber Atkinson. I have been the University of Suffolk's campus Women's Officer for two terms. I am running again so that I can continue the projects in motion when the pandemic began that are unfinished. I am very passionate about advocating for the needs of women both on and off campus and doing my part to improve the student experience. Recent actions include starting the Women's Society & its FB page and beginning conversations around public sexual harassment as well as running a joint survey with the SWCR Officer to establish needs of both women, and parents on and off campus. I hope to continue these things and finish off my previous year's goal of making more baby feeding friendly spaces on campus and signage to encourage parents who may have their children with them to use public social spaces so as not to feel excluded from their student experience. Most recently I have secured availability of free sanitary packs available for collection at student services which I am really proud of during these uncertain times where money is tight in all areas.
