2020 will see Advance HE bring together the annual EDI conference with the biannual Scottish conference into a three day conference with the theme – Courageous conversations and adventurous approaches: Creative thinking in tackling inequality. The 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 and explore two sub-themes: ‘courageous conversations’ and ‘adventurous approaches’. It will dig deep to explore hidden and emerging EDI issues, and highlight the best examples of creative, courageous interventions that are contributing to change. Day one will have an additional focus on using positive action to advance equality in Scottish colleges and universities. As well as sharing best practice across the sector, there will be a focus on innovative approaches from outside HE and further education that have relevance to us.
