Advancing equality and diversity in universities and colleges


Opportunity to be part of our conference

Our last national equality conference in 2016 attracted 193 delegates from higher education (HE) providers across the UK.

Those who attend our national conferences represent a cross section of the staff working at different levels and in a range of areas to advance equality and diversity in HE providers.

Our flagship conferences also bring together sector bodies working within the HE sector, including senior representatives from the HE funding councils, research councils and student organisations. Previously we have also secured coverage in national media and sector publications.

The theme of this year’s conference, inclusivity, intersectionality, action: moving forward the equality agenda in higher education, presents an ideal opportunity for you to:

  • showcase your organisation in a distinctly inclusive, co-operative and constructive space
  • increase awareness of your products and services to a target audience at a fixture on the equality and diversity in HE calendar
  • develop new partnerships with decision-makers and influencers in different areas of HE providers from across the UK
  • maximise your brand’s visibility and demonstrate your alignment with promoting equality and diversity in HE, social mobility and creating a fairer society.
