As part of Aston University's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) week, the College of Business and Social Sciences is hosting a free online event with Professor Kalwant Bhopal.
The virtual event will take place on Microsoft Teams on Tuesday 27th April from 10:30 to 11:30 BST. You will be sent a link to access the event once you have registered through Eventbrite.
Professor Bhopal will address the following topics in her talk:
- Intersectionality in higher education in the UK (primarily between gender and race; in the context of recruitment, representation, and discrimination; both staff and students).
- Her assessment, informed by her research, of Athena Swan and the Race Charter and their relationship with each other.
- The question of what universities should do to achieve equality, diversity and inclusion among staff and students.
There will be allotted time for a live Q&A session.
