Many Universities are engaged in decolonising activities or are beginning to embark on this work, whether that be decolonising the curriculum, specific disciplines or taking a more holistic approach of decolonising whole institutions.

Decolonising DMU are inviting peers from across the sector to a free one-day conference to enable those engaged in this work and those embarking on it to reflect on our collective progress to date and to explore the direction we need to travel next.

The conference is organised around 4 themes:

1. Equity in Education

2. Progression, Talent and Representation

3. Raising awareness, changing culture and behaviour

4. Governance and Accountability

This event is hosted by Decolonising DMU which is De Montfort University’s response to racial inequality within Higher Education. The project has been running since 2019 and takes a holistic approach to tackling racial disparity, working with professional services, academic staff and students. This conference will enable us to share our work to support others on their decolonising journey, but it will also enable us to learn from other good practice across the sector so allowing us to further enhance our goal of becoming an anti-racist university.

Decolonising DMU is the framework through which all race equity work is undertaken at DMU and has enabled DMU to be the first University to be awarded a Silver for the Race Equality Charter in April 2023.

This event is open to all and bookings will close 1 hour prior to the start of the event.
