We are a member of Advance HE's Race Equality Charter. Signing up to this charter demonstrates commitment to improving the representation, progression and success of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students within higher education.
In Middlesex University, in the region of 29% of staff come from minority ethnic backgrounds, around 16% of professors and senior staff are from minority ethnic backgrounds, there are members of the Board of Governors from minority ethnic backgrounds, but the University Executive is not ethnically diverse. We aspire to increasing diversity and inclusion at all levels in the University and a priority is to ensure that the University Executive are listening, learning and acting. Reverse mentoring is part of this process.
We have signed up to the Race at Work Charter, an initiative designed to improve outcomes for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic employees (BAME) in the UK. Signing up means taking practical steps to ensure our workplace is tackling barriers that ethnic minority people face in recruitment and progression and that our organisation is representative of British society today.
The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) works with business and education to inspire people to unleash their potential and become skilled, confident and successful managers and leaders.
The CMI Race network supports people to create more equal, diverse and inclusive organisations by driving change through professional leadership and management practices.
This guide on workplace inclusion, which includes a contribution by Middlesex University Vice Chancellor Prof. Nic Beech, aims to support all organisations in making real change happen, now.
