Reflecting on the 'Diversity of governors in higher education' report

19 Oct 2020 | Simonetta Manfredi, Professor in Equality and Diversity Management and Director of the Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice, Oxford Brookes University, reflects on the findings of the 'Diversity of governors in higher education report'.

In this video, Professor Simonetta Manfredi, discusses the findings and EDI implications of Advance HE's report 'Diversity of governors in higher education', and using the 'Board Recruitment Framework' to address inequality.

As part of our October Connect Benefit Series, Delivering on EDI: the critical governance role, on 22 October, 8:30am – 10am, we are hosting an online Chatham House session exploring how Chairs can support their boards – through the assurance role – to effectively challenge EDI progress in their institutions. This is primarily aimed at Chairs but we recognise that other governors might wish to attend.
