Event description
How much progress has UCL made on race equality? What has improved, what has stayed the same, and what do we need to do next?

About this Event

In 2014, UCL and Student Union held an institutionally seminal event called ‘Why isn’t my professor black?’. 5 years later, we are going to ask, how much progress has UCL made on race equality? What has improved, what has stayed the same, and what do we need to do next? We welcome students and staff from all roles from across UCL to share their thoughts and experiences.

This highly interactive event will be an opportunity to help influence UCL’s future direction and priorities on race equality.

This event marks Black History Month 2019 and will be chaired by Ms Sandy Ogundele, UCLU BME Student's Officer.

Opening remarks: Professor Ijeoma Uchegbu, Provost's Race Equality Envoy

Panel members include:

  • Dr Mike Sulu, Co-Chair Race Equality Steering Group
  • Dr Kamna Patel, Vice Dean (Equality, Diversity & Inclusion) The Bartlett
  • Ms Paulette Williams, Head of Student Success Projects
  • Ms Nilisha Vashist, UCLU Women's Officer
  • Professor Michael Arthur, UCL's President and Provost

This event will be followed by a networking reception at 6.30pm in the Haldane Room.

A number of post-event workshops/focus groups will be taking place, to help create the future Race Equality Charter action plan for UCL. Please email equalities@ucl.ac.uk if you would like to participate, confirming whether you are a member of UCL staff or student.

Please email equalities@ucl.ac.uk if you have any access or dietary requirements.

N.B this event is only open to UCL staff and students.
