This year we commemorate our alumni award winners through the Alumni Festival, an inspiring series of online events where we meet our winners and other influential alumni and explore the ways they transform the lives of those around them.
We’ll be talking to our guests about the connections in their lives, how they adapt to change and the lessons they’ve learnt from mistakes they’ve made. Whether you’ve recently graduated, you’re a long-established member of our community or you’re still studying, the Alumni Festival is an opportunity to learn, be inspired and expand your network.
President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Hugh Brady says:
“It is a pleasure to recognise the exceptional achievements of our Bristol alumni through the 2021 Alumni Awards. It is only right that we commemorate the inspirational accomplishments of these individuals who have made their mark through business, enterprise, sustainability, sport, community impact and transformative philanthropy. It is also a great honour to award The Rt Hon the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE with the Alumni Award for Lifetime Achievement for her spectacular career in law, her transformative impact on the UK’s judicial system and, of course, her distinguished and passionate service as the University’s Chancellor from 2004 – 2016.
I hope you will join us at the Alumni Festival to hear from our alumni awardees and celebrate the diversity and excellence of our alumni around the world.”
