Race Equality Charter Mark

The Race Equality Charter Mark aims to improve the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students within higher education.

It is owned by the Equality Challenge Unit, ECU, which works to further and support equality and diversity for staff and students in Universities and Colleges.

The framework for the race equality charter mark builds on the experience and methodology of ECU’s Athena SWAN Charter.

The University of Manchester was proud to be one of the 31 higher education institutions involved in the trial of the Race Equality Charter Mark. Work started in September 2014 and concluded in April 2015. Of the 21 institutions that submitted applications only eight received the Bronze Award. The University of Manchester is delighted to be among these eight.
