International speaker and author, Professor Neil Thompson, calls into Belfast Met

International speaker and author, Professor Neil Thompson, calls into Belfast Met with latest publication for Gerry Skelton.

In welcoming Professor Neil Thompson back to Belfast Met, Gerry Skelton commented:
“I was delighted to meet once again with Neil, to consolidate our work on equality, challenging negative discrimination and championing anti-oppressive practice. Building on our 2016 symposium (Discrimination and oppression: dealing with the ‘ISMs’), I felt privileged he chose to present me with a copy of his latest book release ‘Promoting Equality’ (4th edition, 2018); which make an essential contribution to the social work and wider fields. I wholeheartedly endorse this text {and Neil Thompson’s work generally}, and strongly encourage educators, trainers, practitioners and students to read and absorb its wisdom and challenge”.

Reflecting on his recent visit, Professor Thompson commented:
“It was a delight to pay a return visit to Belfast Met and present Gerry Skelton with a copy of the brand new fourth edition of my Promoting Equality book. Gerry is an inspiring teacher and a model of integrity, and so it is always a pleasure to spend time with him.”
