Participate in the Race Equality Survey

University logo

A message from Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Parveen Yaqoob and Dean for Diversity and Inclusion Dr Allán Laville

Dear colleagues,

Hope you are well. It is really good to see many of you at the Black History Month events. The topics of discussion have been broad and varied, but the energy and commitment of the participants to shape the debate around race issues has been consistently impressive.

We would like to continue to build on this spirit and invite you to participate in a Race Equality Survey. The survey seeks to understand how race and ethnicity affects the day-to-day experience of our staff and students and what we can do to improve this experience. You do not need to be Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) to participate. Making our University a more inclusive place is a responsibility of each one of us, and you can support this by participating in the survey.

The survey should not take more than 20 minutes to complete, and we encourage you to share details wherever possible. The survey can be accessed through the link below:

The survey responses will not only inform the Race Equality Review but will also contribute towards a future Race Equality Charter Mark application. The results will also inform the recommendations of the review and the forward action plan which will follow. We hope you will see your views and ideas reflected within that action plan and will see that we are acting upon the survey results.

We are running a similar survey for students, both of which will close at 23.59 on 26 October

We would also like to use the opportunity to encourage you to sign up for the Vice-Chancellor's next all-staff briefing on Tuesday 20 October (14:00-15:00), which will be focused on the Race Equality Review that both of us are leading.

To register for the briefing, please complete this short online form.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

 

Parveen & Allán
