The University of East London achieved a Bronze Race Equality Charter (REC) award in May 2019. The Race Equality Charter Mark, managed by Advance HE, aims to support and encourage universities to work towards race equality. It provides a framework through which we as an institution can work to identify and reflect on barriers experienced by minority ethnic staff and students.
This was the culmination of a two-year collaborative effort by staff across the institution. The resulting submission and, most importantly, the action plan provided us a clear direction to progress race equality.
