The University of Birmingham is committed to advancing equality and embracing diversity in all its forms, and thus we should strive to achieve tried and tested Equality Marks, such like the Race Equality Charter to ensure our processes and practices are aligned with our values and beliefs regarding this commitment.
The 3-year self-assessment process enabled us to take a careful and comprehensive analysis of our organisational processes and culture. This is significant work which included our largest ever consultative exercise on race, involving over 5,000 staff and students throughout 2018 and 2019.
The University joined the Charter in 2017 and submitted an application to the February 2020 round. The University has been awarded a Bronze Charter Mark and now has until 2023 to implement a comprehensive action plan (PDF-390KB). An internal REC delivery group would be set up to monitor our insitutional progress.
