Welfare and Diversity Representative 2022/23: Laura Tipple
Hey everyone, I’m Laura, and I’m the Welfare and Diversity Rep for 22/23.
A little bit about me: I’m going into 4th year (which feels pretty mad?!) after intercalating in Manchester, and I’m pretty excited to be back in Liverpool and be a part of the committee this year! My role as the welfare and diversity rep is to help you feel as welcome as possible and be a friendly face for advice or help at any time. Med school can be tricky sometimes, so I’m here for a chat/walk/cafe trip any time. I’ll also be organising the mentoring scheme, so pairing up a first-year with a second-year mentor to help you settle in. I’ll be working with the rest of the diversity team (Toby, Karina, and Bryony) throughout the year to work more towards making everyone feel as included and represented as possible!
Feel free to drop me a message at email@example.com :)
Ethnic Minorities Representative 2022/23: Karina Gurung
Hey everyone, I'm Soha and I'm very excited to be your BAME rep 21/22 !! I have lots of new ideas to make the LMSS a safe, inclusive and approachable society for EVERY INDIVIDUAL to enjoy :) I'll be going into my fifth year so if you have any questions at all (even if its completely unrelated) please don't hesitate to drop me an email !
I hope you love this city as much as I do (possible bias as I'm a huge Liverpool fc fan) & I look forward to meeting you all xxx
LGBTQ Representative 2022/23: Toby Slack
Hi, my name is Toby, I identify as a non-binary gay man, and I am in 3rd year (going into 4th year September 2022!)
I am your LGBTQ+ Rep for 2022/23. I am an active member of the Queer Medics Society and the Medics Against Discrimination Society, as well as the LMSS and I would love to work hard to make sure the society and wider medical school becomes more inclusive and accepting of people from all backgrounds.
Women’s Representative 2022/23: Bryony Rodgers
Hello everyone, I am Bryony! A bit about me: I am going into my 6th year at medical school; an old granny at heart, I enjoy cycling and hiking (anything outside), and I am a big foodie. I'm super excited to get involved with the LMSS committee this year!
In my role this year, I want to promote and challenge the stigma associated with female doctors accessing and succeeding in historically male-dominated specialities. I want to organise events where we hear from such inspirational doctors about their challenges and how they overcome them! I want to ensure everyone feels included and safe within the society. I am a friendly face, always here for a chat if needed :)
