Higher education institutions have notoriously failed to achieve ethic minority representation, particularly at the most senior levels. Black and minority ethnic academics in the UK are significantly more likely than white colleagues to move overseas to progress their careers, often due to negative experiences. Has the University done enough? If not, how should we proceed in tackling inequality?

This lunchtime session questions issues of racism and race equality in academia and universities more broadly, and how institutions are taking steps to reduce inequality.
