Equality, Diversity and Inclusion workshops
With reports highlighting inequality and inequity across the higher education sector for people from minority groups, Advance HE offer programmes, events and conferences which aim to create safe spaces to discuss and debate topics of equality, diversity and inclusion. Our portfolio supports the addressing of barriers to career development and progression experienced by Black, Asian and minority ethnic staff, and advancing gender equality in higher education.
Advance HE’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion workshops are designed to provide participants with the skills, knowledge and confidence to adopt an intersectional approach to understanding and dealing effectively with a range of equality and diversity issues in the workplace.
Challenging privilege, navigating intersectionality
This workshop will appeal to a wide range of audiences within the sector. In particular, anyone involved in teaching and/or management, interested in improving inclusivity of their practice. This two-module workshop will introduce the latest insights and learning for the sector for challenging privilege and navigating intersectionality.

Allyship and the anti-racist campus
The programme moves from simple to complex and should therefore appeal to a range of audiences within the sector; whether professional services, new to academia, senior academic staff, or those in leadership roles. This session uses allyship as a starting point to action; and proposes that for lasting change to take place in race equity, stakeholders must move beyond a general understanding of allyship to understanding this within the context of race. We aim therefore to provide a space to deepen our understanding of allyship so that these conversations can be turned into action.
As institutions struggle to demonstrate their commitment to realising their moral, legal, strategic and equality objectives, the importance of effective leadership, particularly to increase diversity and promote greater inclusion for all has gained greater significance.
Embedding inclusive practices as the golden thread that runs throughout organisations is a minimum requirement, but remains a priority issue. Effective leadership is critical to the success of any organisation, however, there is no consensus about how inclusive leadership is conceptualised and operationalized.
This interactive, path breaking course aims employs the lens of social justice in order to equip current and prospective leaders with the knowledge and skills to transform their leadership practices by introducing them to contemporary scholarship and discourses relating to inclusive leadership.
Participants will engage with key questions and contestations in exploring the meaning of inclusive leadership and how it is understood personally as within their organisation. The course will also enable participants to transform their own practice by understanding:
- their individual role as a change agent in relation to their team and/or service, their organisation, and the broader society;
- the need to adopt a systemic approach to creating equality and inclusion for all
- the changing nature of the drivers for inclusion and therefore of inclusive leadership.
