Tackling Racial Inequality - Reporting Experiences

The School has established a reporting form where you can share you comments and experiences of racism or racial inequality in all its forms at the School or University.

The online form allows you to submit your comments anonymously if preferred.

Your comments will be delivered to the School’s Inclusion and Diversity Officer, who will discuss your feedback with other EDI leads with a view to developing a School strategy to improve experiences for people of colour (POC).
