Academic teaching staff: developing equality and diversity skills, knowledge and values

HEIs have a responsibility to ensure that academic staff have the knowledge, skills and confidence to deliver the curriculum in a way that safeguards individuals and fosters good relations between different groups.

Aimed at senior management, human resources staff and equality and diversity practitioners, this report explores the following themes:

  • equality and diversity expertise
  • HEI enablers, for example, culture, leadership and strategy
  • teaching and learning development for academic teaching staff
  • developing and supporting the equality and diversity expertise of academic teaching staff
  • talent management

The report and its recommendations for HEIs and higher education sector bodies is evidenced by a systematic literature review, analysis of an online survey collecting data from academic teaching staff across the UK and the involvement of ten HEIs as case studies.
