After four years of operating the Race Equality Charter (REC), we are currently undertaking a review of the REC. The REC process currently only accepts institution-wide submissions, and small and or specialist institutions may find it challenging to meet all the requirements of the current process.
As part of the review, we want to consult with small and specialist institutions to gauge their interest and requirements for a framework for advancing race equality in their institutions.
The sessions will involve working through the current application process and gaining feedback from institutions on which sections would be realistic in meeting and which areas would be challenging. We aim to develop a pilot process for small and or specialist institutions this year.
We are holding a half day event starting at 10:30 on the 1 September and also on the 17 September by Zoom.

The Race Equality Charter (REC) aims to improve the representation, progression and success of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students within higher education. The REC was launched in 2016, following a successful pilot and currently we have 66 higher education member institutions and 15 bronze award holding institutions.
