Race Equality Charter

As a member of the Race Equality Charter (REC) we have committed to improving the representation, progression and success of our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students. This will require a comprehensive evaluation of race equality across the institution, developing appropriate actions in response.  We will need to demonstrate that we have a solid foundation for eliminating racial inequalities and for developing an inclusive culture that values all staff and students.

A high-level Steering Group chaired by our DVC and Provost Professor Judith Squires is being established to take the university through this process, with several task and finish groups feeding into this. 

An institutional action place to tackle racism and promote race equality is under development as part of our work within the framework of the Race Equality Charter.  Surveys and focus groups with our staff, students and external partners will help shape our strategy and action plan in this area and these will be implemented under the model of shared ownership and responsibility across the whole institution.
