Pilot of Equality Challenge Unit Race Equality Charter Mark

11 Jun 2014

The University is taking part in the pilot of the Equality Challenge Unit’s (ECU) new race equality charter mark, showing a commitment to tackling racial inequalities in higher education

The charter mark is about working hard to improve the representation, progression and success of our minority ethnic staff and students. If we can show real progression over the next year, alongside ambitious action plans for future work, we will be able to submit for a charter mark award in spring 2015.

This backs up a piece of work which a working group led by Patrick Johnson, Head of Equality and Diversity and Andrew Walsh, Director of Research and Business Engagement Support Services has been doing, aimed at increasing the number of BME staff working at the University, and in particular in senior PSS roles.

One of the first tasks will be to set up a self-assessment team which will include staff at different grades both PSS and academic which will then lead on the development of the charter mark.
