To help drive forward our efforts to improve racial equality at LSBU, we have signed up to Advance HE’s Race Equality Charter. The charter serves as a helpful framework as we work towards reviewing and improving existing structures, policies and practices to ensure racial equality for all our staff and students. As part of joining the Charter, LSBU has committed to five fundamental guiding principles which will underpin our efforts to improve our policies, practices and culture through structured action planning.
The University has assembled a self-assessment team (SAT) who will lead our efforts to address racial inequality by establishing institutional priority areas and developing an evidence-based action plan to underpin the agreed priorities and advance race equality.
The REC is sponsored by Alex Bush (Chief People Officer).
The formation of the SAT team was led by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team who are also key in the management of the REC process.
The SAT membership comprises of staff and students from across the institution, representing a wide range of experiences, skills, and knowledge that will be instrumental in driving systemic change for the University.
