Intersectionality in Practice: An event for Athena Swan and Race Equality Charter members

Activity: Public engagement and outreachContribution to the work of non-academic organisations


The Athena Swan and Race Equality Charter focus on specific protected characteristics and asks applicants to demonstrate an understanding of intersectional inequalities in their context and to design actions to address these. This Enhancing Practice event aims to stimulate debate and increase understanding among AS and REC members on what it means to work intersectionally on inequalities in Higher Education, and to explore experiences on embedding intersectionality principles in different HE contexts. We anticipate organizing further conversations withmembers on approaches to working intersectionally in specific areas of practice and will seek input from event participants to shape these future sessions.
