As part of the Tackling racism on campus: Raising awareness and creating the conditions for confident conversations project this webinar will give institutions the opportunity to share good practice with the sector on progressing race equality.
This session will explore what needs to be done to take forward anti-racism and race equality within the tertiary sector. Professor Rowena Arshad who is leading the webinar said: “In the session I will draw from my experience of having to take this work forward over the years but more specifically concentrate on the current push as a result of the murder of George Floyd and others and the recognition of the calls of the Black Lives Matter movement. We will look at where change is occurring, what anti-racist allyship means but also discuss the shape of quiet resistance as we take issues forward.”
Call for Expression of Interest - Online Racial Harassment Research
As part of this project, Advance HE are seeking to commission research on the experiences of staff in further and higher education institutions of racial harassment and bullying in online spaces.
This research will explore the forms and impacts of harassment and bullying in professional online spaces, with the aim of identifying the types of harassment and power dynamics reported by respondents, thus providing an evidence base for recommendations for institutions to consider.
