Conference 2017

Inclusivity, intersectionality, action: moving forward the equality agenda in higher education

This year ECU’s conference is taking place on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 November in Birmingham, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, and will focus on the themes of inclusivity, intersectionality and action.

Universities across the UK are driving forward the equality agenda for the benefit of their students and staff. This conference aims to provide a showcase for this work and an opportunity for collaboration and sharing of experience, particularly in the context of new challenges such as Brexit.

All of the conference content will be framed around the themes of inclusivity, intersectionality and action:

  • creating an inclusive university
  • taking an intersectional approach to equality and diversity
  • taking action and overcoming barriers to action on equality and diversity

Join us for an inspiring two days.
