Turning words into actions: Eliminating racism and racial inequality in higher education
Hosted by Universities UK
How can universities harness the momentum behind the Black Lives Matter movement as a moment for tangible, permanent action to address racial inequality affecting students and staff? And what are the immediate and longer-term steps universities should be taking to address structural racism?
This webinar will look at how institutions can effectively respond and take action to identify and implement change, and embed this across their university. We will hear lived experiences, as well as from university leadership and practitioners working to affect change in their institutions. The session will also help to inform ongoing work and new sector guidance being coordinated by Universities UK into tackling racial harassment at universities and addressing the BAME student degree awarding gap.
The webinar will be chaired by Baroness Valerie Amos, Director of SOAS. This session is open to all, but we are particularly keen to see attendance from those in management and leadership roles at UK universities.
