We are a network of academic and professional services colleagues from the universities of Amsterdam (NL) and Birmingham (UK). We are working collaboratively to share research and best practice to embed EDI across institutional policy and governance, research, and education.
Areas of Focus
The Student Experience
Students are at the heart of the higher education sector. What challenges do our students face when it comes to EDI, and how can we, as researchers and professionals, help to meet these?
Policy and Implementation
