About this event
The Oxford Character Project has booked an Uncomfortable Oxford tour for prospective Global Leadership Initiative (GLI) students to learn more about the city of Oxford and its thousand-year-old history. Join us for a walk to explore the off-the-beaten paths, and make connections between the "uncomfortable" history of Oxford and your leadership journey.
This tour is part of our Rethinking Leadership event series where we invite Oxford postgraduates to reimagine what leadership means for them and how to become good leaders. It will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded people from across the university. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about our leadership programmes and chat with the GLI team about our application process.

17:00-17:30 - Reflections and networking over tea and coffee at the Oxford Character Project office

About the Tour
Considered the perfect introductory tour of Oxford, this tour engages with politics of memory in the city and university, and covers histories of empire, class divides, gender discrimination and highlights how these legacies have left an enduring impact on our modern lives. Uncomfortable Oxford is an academic-led organisation that researches and runs critical thinking tours of Oxford. Tours are discussion-based, and designed to raise questions about historical memory, wealth inequality, race, gender, and class discrimination, and local connections to the empire.
