Staff members are invited to share their views on Race Equality at the University

The University is committed to creating an inclusive environment where individuals feel welcome irrespective of their race or ethnicity. To help facilitate progress, we are currently working towards an application for the Race Equality Charter (REC) Bronze Award. The Charter is a nationwide scheme run by the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) and aims to improve the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students within higher education.

The REC application process is coordinated by the University’s Self-Assessment Team (SAT) chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Institutional and International Relations, Professor Eilís Ferran, and the University Race Equality Champion Professor Roel Sterckx.

The SAT is working to ensure that all staff and students have the opportunity to be involved and to provide feedback through surveys, focus groups and events.

Staff members are currently invited to complete the Race Equality Charter survey to share their views on working at Cambridge and whether there is anything the University can do to advance race equality.  

The anonymised survey findings will help us to identify areas for improvement and possible ways forward, and will be used to inform the University’s Race Equality Charter Action Plan. The staff survey complements a student survey run in March.

The survey can be accessed through the following link The survey will close on 25 June.

More information about Cambridge’s application for an REC Bronze Award is available here.

Any queries about the University’s participation in the Race Equality Charter may be directed to Dr Joanna Jasiewicz in Equality & Diversity team.
