Race Equity @ LSTM
“IN A RACIST SOCIETY, IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO BE NON-RACIST, WE MUST BE ANTI-RACIST.”
An inquiry ‘Tackling Racial Harassment: Universities Challenged’ by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (2019) found:
24% of minority ethnic students, and 9% of white students, had experienced racial harassment since starting their course.
3 in 20 university staff and 1 in 20 students left because of racial harassment.
Over half of staff reported being ignored or excluded because of their race.
We recognise our responsibilities as an organisation based in the UK, but with a global reach, and we are undertaking a series of activities at the institutional and department level, which are endorsed by the Management Committee and are part of a wider strategy on creating an inclusive workplace where people feel equally valued:
