Earlier this month we were delighted to see that two of our expert panellists for our Tackling Harassment: Promoting Cultural Change in Higher Education programme were appointed to the Advance HE Race Equality Charter Committee.
David Richardson, Vice-Chancellor of University of East Anglia, and Kaushika Patel, Pro Vice-Chancellor of De Montfort University, have been appointed as Co-Chair and committee member respectively. We’re looking forward to seeing what both David and Kaushika achieve as part of the REC Governance Committee.
The REC provides a framework through which institutions work to identify and self-reflect on institutional and cultural barriers standing in the way of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students. The new committee has a wide range of equality, diversity and inclusion skills and lived experience, and will play an instrumental role in ensuring the Charter remains fit for purpose.
Tackling Harassment takes a holistic approach towards supporting universities in tackling harassment and hate. The complementary modules Being an Active Bystander and Responding to Disclosures, combine evidence-based best practices with expert learning design to encourage positive change throughout the whole university community.
This programme complements existing in-person initiatives to provide a comprehensive university-wide approach. It has been reviewed by an expert panel of academics, university staff, students and an accessibility advisor, ensuring that this course is suitable for the whole university community.
