This webinar is organised by the UoL BAME Staff Network; it is delivered by Dr. Jason Arday, Associate Professor in Sociology at Durham Uni.

Higher education is currently in a state of turbulence, as we begin to disrupt the systemic nature of racism throughout the sector. This talk focuses on the advancements we have collectively made over the last year in the response to the global wave of support for the BLM movement. Considerations will explore how we can continue to shift the dial moving forward as we continue to advance race equality within the sector and beyond.
