This role will be based on the University campus, with scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are also open to discussing flexible working arrangements.
Would you like to manage the submission of the institutional Race Equality Charter submission? Do you have strong project management skills and the desire to advance EDI at the University?
The University of Leeds is one of the top 135 universities in the world. We have a truly global community, with more than 39,000 students from 170 different countries and over 9,000 staff of 100 different nationalities. Established in 1904, we have a strong tradition of academic excellence, reflected in first-class student education, along with world-leading research that has a real impact around the globe.
The University of Leeds has made a strong commitment to race equality in our recent Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy. As part of this we aspire to achieve an institutional Bronze Race Equality (REC) Charter Award by 2025. Our participation in the REC is intended to enable a deep, robust and participatory analysis of the systemic and cultural barriers to race equity at the University. This will lead to the creation of an evidence-based, impactful institutional action plan.
Our submission to REC will be strategically led by our Co-Dean for EDI Dr Kendi Guantai. We are recruiting an EDI Manager (Race Equality Charter) to support the Dean and project manage all aspects of our REC application activities. This will include coordinating the institutional self-assessment, collating and presenting qualitative and quantitative data and catalysing and managing wide-spread engagement in REC from across the University.
You will be responsible for consulting on, developing and managing race equality / anti-racism initiatives and programmes that flow from our self-assessment. They will further be expected to help ensure that race equality is mainstreamed and embedded in policies and practices across the institution. This role is a fantastic opportunity to help generate and sustain meaningful structural change at the University of Leeds and to improve outcomes and experiences for ethnically minoritised members of our community. We particularly welcome applications from those sensitive to the experience of people from ethnically minoritised backgrounds.
