In the last two years, we have seen a resurgence of voices protesting inequality (racial injustice and the Black Lives Matter Movement, the impact of Covid on existing inequalities, sexual harassment and violence) and a growing interest across the HE and FE sectors in responding to and working with this energy to create meaningful and sustainable change.
At last year's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Conference, we asked what it looks like when:
- institutions respond positively to the diversity of voices, energy and scholarship advocating for change?
- the voices from the margins are welcomed centre stage, and inclusion is at the heart of our approach to institutional culture?
- our leadership models and practices are truly inclusive?
- we seek out, develop, value and celebrate change agents from outside traditional hierarchies, talent pools and scholarship?
- the complexity of identity and intersectionality informs thinking and practice and shapes new approaches to inclusion and building belonging?
