Integrating EDI Initiatives Slowly - Avoiding a Full Stop

Research output: Other contributionBlog Post


I had the absolute pleasure of chairing the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Panel at this year’s ALT Conference. The speakers – Dr Miriam Mbah, Dr Caroline Derry, Dr Lucy Floyd & Dr Foluke Adebisi – were incredible.
I learned a lot. We covered the ‘awarding gap’ as opposed to the ‘attainment gap’ (Mbah & Derry) – something I should have been much more aware of, but wasn’t. Professional identity & gender (Floyd) – how gender plays a part in hiring/firing, of course, but also in how we interact in the classroom, and how little some people are aware of this issue. And teaching law and race in UKHE (Adebisi). I am part of the Decolonisation of the Curriculum Working Group at Aston University and so this is a topic I passionately engaged with during the session and, moving forward, by looking up some of the readings, podcasts, etc. mentioned in the presentation and subsequent discussion.
