Content

This is an interactive session where the steering group will be inviting feedback from the audience on the assets under development, to move them from a statement to practical steps, to accountability.

 

This is the fifth webinar in the series linked to the Tackling Racism on Campus: Raising awareness and creating the conditions for confident conversations project. Which is an Advance HE Project funded by SFC and led by an expert group of EDI practitioners, academics, tertiary education staff and students.

Khadija Mohammed, Monica Medina and Sharan Virdee will be sharing the Race Statement which underpins the Declaration Against Racism. They will be discussing each of the highlighted areas from university and college perspectives and with engagement from the audience to create actionable and accountable frameworks with clear reference points to the sector’s codes for good governance.
