UCD Values in Action Awards 2019
Award Recipient: Dr Conor Buggy, UCD School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Sports Science
Nominator: Assoc. Prof. Clare Corish
Conor is being recognised for how he daily takes his values, aligns them with the UCD Values and lives these in the work environment to the benefit of his colleagues and students. He epitomises collegiality, always there to answer academic queries, gives sensible advice and provides a listening ear. More formally, though in a voluntary capacity, Conor is a member of the Dignity and Respect Colleagues network in the University, making himself available confidentially to staff and students. He contributes to UCD’s equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) agenda through his work on such initiatives as development of the Equality Impact Assessment Toolkit, being a vocal proponent of Athena SWAN, the redesign of UCD’s Dignity and Respect Policy, development of UCD’s Gender Identity Policy, mentoring female colleagues undertaking the Aurora programme and as an active player in ensuring greater recognition for LGBTI staff and students.
