The Task Force reviews existing activities across the divisions, GLAM, central university and colleges, and student groups which advance racial equality, and considers how actions which work might be shared and adopted more widely across the University.
We provide an opportunity for staff and students, and leaders, across the collegiate University to reflect on their own experiences, identify priority issues and contribute to the shaping of key actions; and we seek the perspectives of people from outside the institution who feel themselves excluded from it.
We are reviewing and drawing upon qualitative and quantitative data, and reviewing good practice in other Universities and in other sectors, including our local community and internationally, to enable us to compare our current practices with best practice, and to ‘map gaps’.
We have engaged an expert external consultant.
We are building on the University’s Race Equality Charter (REC) Action Plan to create a clear programme of measurable actions to accelerate the University’s race equality efforts and contribute to the next REC application.
