Race Equality First
During July 2018 we stood with our colleagues across the country to support Race Equality First to challenge prejudice and intolerance. We have joined their campaign to say #RacismEndswithUs.
What is Racism and How does it affect us?
Racism can take many forms but includes prejudice, discrimination and hatred directed to individuals because of their colour, ethnicity or national origin. It can effect people and communities in different ways. It is only by understanding the impact our behaviours and privileges can have on others that we can ensure that everyone is treated with dignity and respect. Although things are changing, racist and hate crime incidents still take place. We are committed to tackling ignorance, intolerance and hatred so that all people are accepted without exception.
You can find out more about what we are doing to tackle religious and race based hate here.
Hear from our DVC and Provost why racism and division is not welcome within our university community.
