At London Met we do not have a seasonal relationship with the race equity agenda. Addressing racial and social justice sits at the heart of our mission. There is no other sector better placed than higher education to address complex social problems and for too long equalities rhetoric has not been matched with real action within the walls of the academy. The challenges are well documented in government sponsored reports and in the research of scholars concerned with race within higher education.
London Met’s Race Equity Strategy 2020/21 – 2024/25, developed in consultation with staff and students, reflects our commitment to ensure that we deliver real change across the University. The full scale of our activities is not captured in the plan because our approach is truly holistic; every individual in every department of the University is part of the solution to create the systems and environment where everyone is respected and valued.
This plan has been developed in consultation with Black and minoritised staff and students, and will be subject to monitoring and evaluation.
