Equalities plus

11 Mar 2022 | Advance HE Advance HE/HEPI webinar: Professor Shitij Kapur, Kaushika Patel and Professor David Ruebain share their thoughts on: "how can higher education leaders create inclusive institutions?"

In a webinar hosted by Advance HE and HEPI, our speakers debated balancing equalities priorities alongside broader issues and tensions around the presence of institutional racism, a mental health and well-being crisis, sluggish social mobility and continuing gender disparities – asking how leaders support all these priorities at the same time, particularly during a pandemic? A whole institutional approach is powerful, but how does strategic organisational leadership and governance need to evolve to encompass all of the related issues? 

Our speakers were:

  • Professor Shitij Kapur, President and Principal, King’s College London
  • Kaushika Patel, Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, De Montfort University 
  • Professor David Ruebain, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Culture, Equality & Inclusion), University of Sussex
