Being Anti-Racist: ACT – LECTURE SERIES 

Our lecture series is part of the central EDI Team’s Being Anti-Racist: ACT development programme for staff and PGRs. These lectures seek to compliment and develop upon the learnings and themes explored in the main programme, working in parallel to continually help participants develop their understanding of what it means to be anti-racist in a work context, and beyond.

Our most recent lecture, ‘Leading individual and institutional anti-racism', featured Professor Udy Archibong, Professor of Diversity and Pro-Vice-Chancellor of EDI at the University of Bradford. In this talk, Prof. Udy Archibong discusses how leadership goes beyond titles and requires individuals to take authority over their actions.

I signed up to attend the Being Anti-Racist series because I wanted to learn more. I think like most people, I want to fight against racism but am not always sure what else I could be doing to make a real difference. The first talk in the series addressed some difficult and uncomfortable ideas in a very clear way. It was well structured and informative and there are some excellent follow up resources for staff to engage with.

Being Anti-Racist: ACT SharePoint

Our dedicated SharePoint site hosts a range of resources to assist participants in self-directed learning. This wealth of resources is a pivotal aspect to Being Anti-Racist: ACT – hosting recordings of talks for members who are unable to attend live events and sharing relevant resources relating to those topics. 

Each lecture will be promoted on this platform, alongside resources shared by the chosen speaker. This helps participants stay up to date with the next stage in the series, and creates an ever-developing platform of resources to aid their journey to becoming anti-racist.
