How can universities build an equal, diverse and inclusive organisation?

The League of European Research Universities just released a position paper I contributed to, entitled “Equality, diversity and inclusion at universities: the power of a systemic approach”.

“[The paper] is the culmination of two years’ intensive work. Many members of LERU universities were consulted, the latest research evidence on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) was examined and examples of good practice were collected from LERU universities.”

“The paper’s key message is that EDI can be more effectively promoted at universities by making use of a comprehensive approach. Such an approach needs to be holistic and systemic in 1/ addressing inclusion and enhanced representation of all under-represented groups; 2/ aiming at the entire academic community of staff and students together; and 3/ making the content of both the research and the research-led curriculum more inclusive.”
