As a School, we have been continuing our discussions and making changes with a specific focus on Racial Justice and promoting active Anti-racism practices. We accept that breaking down long-standing, structural and problematic racist inequalities will take time, and this is an ongoing commitment. We also know we must start somewhere, so have committed ourselves to five key action points for the upcoming academic year 2020/21 along with further updates.
We have been hosting insightful panel discussions with staff, students and CDD schools as well as regularly sharing resources. We are looking to work with external experts and educators and are actively organising further training.
We look forward to continuing with these positive steps and sharing more with our audiences about the work we are doing.
