Karen will become Chancellor during the University’s 25th anniversary year and 25 years after completing her undergraduate geography degree at the University in 1992.

As the chairwoman of MediaCom, the UK’s largest media agency, Karen is no stranger to working with young people as she established MediaCom’s apprenticeship scheme for 18-24 year olds in 2012.

Please join us in welcoming Karen, the most senior woman from a Black, Asian and minority-ethnic background in the UK Advertising and Media industry, featuring 5 times in the Power List of Britain’s 100 most influential Black People and our first Chancellor to be an Alumna of the University.

Tickets are free and can be found on Eventbrite. The event will include a performance by the University of Portsmouth Gospel Choir fresh from their success on the TV programme Pitch Battle.
