This BME Leadership Summit aims to empower agents of change and key decision makers in higher education to take action within their institution and advance the race equality agenda.
The third Advance HE BME Leadership Summit will have a focus around BME attainment in higher education. The summit will consider a wide range of aspects that impact on attainment including recruitment, transition, retention and attainment of BME students, recruitment, retention and promotion of BME staff, BME representation in leadership roles, BME pay gaps and the impact of white privilege. The issues are significant and well known but change is not happening quickly enough. The summit aims to look at, understand and encourage the expansion of some of the positive work in the sector to address these issues where real change is happening.

This summit has been designed for senior leaders who are responsible for institutional and strategic change related to race equality, those who are working towards race equality within HEIs in all areas and across any activities.
