Clenton Farquharson’s honorary doctorate

Last week, we celebrated Clenton Farquharson‘s honorary doctorate at the University of Birmingham’s College of Social Sciences graduation ceremony.

Speaking about the doctorate, Clenton said he felt humbled and proud because of the recognition from his hometown as well as for the opportunity to give his passion for equity and solving inequalities a spotlight, and amplify the voices of some of the most marginalised – “that’s what I’m hoping it will do, just being able to speak to power.”

You can watch Catherine Needham, Professor of Public Policy and Public Management here, and Clenton’s speeches and a video of Clenton reflecting on what the honorary doctorate meant to him below.
