Download your copy of our new Fostering Inclusion in Higher Education events brochure for 2021–22. Celebrating best practice and development to support the understanding of common issues, design of inclusive support
services, and development of accessible campus environments to make everyone feel welcome.
Inclusion within higher education presents complex challenges for the sector including increased regulatory attention on the broader student experience or an increased desire to engage with students through a range of new techniques and technologies. There is a need for the institution to ensure that as it evolves that it is welcome environment for all.
Our portfolio will support your institution to help make everyone feel welcome.
We bring a wealth of expertise to our portfolio of services in fostering inclusion, identifying the drivers for change in the Equality in HE Statistical Report, and our work across the sector, such as the support of the Disabled Students Commission, and providing the forum for the sharing good practice in our conferences and symposia such as the EDI Conference.

These workshops will offer practical advice, guidance, policy information, frameworks and toolkits to support positive change within departments, schools, faculties and institutions in areas such as race equality, challenging privilege, and dignity and respect. Themes covered as part of our EDI series include:

This conference will focus on ensuring that approaches to EDI work for all and addressing current and future challenges and opportunities. Through forecasting emerging EDI topics and priorities in the sector, it will create space for reflection and capacity building.
