London Higher stands in solidarity with the black, Asian and minority ethnic community, and everyone facing inequality, racism and oppression – be it in London, the UK or around the world.
We know that it is though diversity that our great city thrives, and we are proud that for us and for our member institutions, equality, fairness and inclusion are essential to all they do. As educators, we seek to inspire regardless of background, tackling important issues, challenging barriers, and deepening understanding though multiplicity of views.
We will continue to work collectively with our members to bring about change, and carry out work to increase diversity – not least through our new taskforce looking at the potential avenues of work in this area.
Diversity and inclusion are not just words; tolerance is not a campaign. They must be at the core of everything that we do.
