The project was awarded €30,000 from the HEA fund that was established to advance gender equality initiatives in Irish higher education.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up  The majority of the five partner institutions in the project are in the process of, or have already have developed, gender identity and expression policies and procedures.  The awarded programme is seen as contributing to ongoing progress in this area through dispelling gender stereotypes, enhancing and deepening awareness and capacity. The funding will be used to develop two distinct programmes: one for academic and professional management and support staff one for senior executive teams. Once piloted, the programme will be rolled out amongst the five partner institutions leading to the development and launch of a permanent resource that will be available for all staff. The programme will be delivered by ShoutOut, a charity that provides educational programmes in educational institutions in areas such as sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and intersex identity. The announcement today of the gender identity and diversity training programme coincides with Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), established to show support of trans identities and reject transphobia. Institute of Technology Carlow will mark its solidarity and support for the trans community today by raising the flag associated with this day at the Haughton Building and by supporting a social media campaign that rejects transphobia.Colette Lane, Director of EDI and People, Institute of Technology commented, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to be able to develop and implement this training and very much appreciate the funding provided to enable us to achieve this”.

Phillips to part with Palace

first_img Phillips joined Palace on loan from Blackpool at the start of the year before making his move permanent in the summer. This term, though, he has made just five appearances from the bench. He told the club’s website: “It went well for me at the end of the season and then the play-off final – getting the goal and securing promotion was right up there with one of my highest achievements in football. “I have to thank the club and the supporters who have been absolutely magnificent to me and welcomed me with open arms from day one. That will stay in my memories for a long time.” Phillips was brought to the club by former boss Ian Holloway, who has since been replaced by Tony Pulis. Pulis said: “He is a fantastic professional and there is no way I would stand in the way of what he wants to do. He has been brilliant to have around the place in the last few weeks that I have been here and of course he played a major role in getting this club promoted through the play-offs. “His attitude in and around the rest of the players is first class and you can see why, at 40 years of age, he is still playing in the Premier League. I wish him every success in the future.” The 40-year-old will exit Selhurst Park by mutual consent. The former England international scored the penalty against Watford in the play-off final which took the Eagles into the Barclays Premier League, but he has barely featured this season.

President Trump signs new travel ban

first_imgA month after federal judges block President Trump’s executive order to ban residents from seven African and Middle Easter countries- Trump signed a new executive order Monday, presenting a new travel ban with not many changes made.Trump’s new travel ban will take effect March 16, exempting citizens from Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from obtaining visas for at least 90 days and suspending refugees from entering the United States for 120 days.Trump’s newly drafted ban dropped Iraq from the original list of countries from January’s executive order.The executive order states the United States allied Iraqi government had undertaken steps to enhance travel documentation, information sharing, and the allowed the return of Iraqi nationals that were turned away at airports.According to CNN, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Iraq’s removal from the list came after an intense review from the State Department to improve vetting from Iraqi citizens in collaboration with the Iraqi government.The original ban came under intense criticism for banning countries that have a large Muslim population, earning its label as the “Muslim ban”.This new order states it will not prioritize religious minorities when considering refugee admission cases.But many are voicing their opinions on social media, calling the new travel ban a repeat of the previous order.“Here we go again…Muslim Ban 2.0 #NoBanNowall,” tweeted by Indiana Democratic Representative Andre Carson.During the signing of the new executive order, no media was present but White House spokesman Sean Spicer tweeted a picture of President Trump signing the new order.“This order is part of our ongoing efforts to eliminate vulnerabilities that radical Islamist terrorists can and will exploit for destructive ends,” said Tillerson.last_img read more
