2 © Schneider~Ross S~R 1. SOAS: The Context Strong drivers for increasing diversity at senior levels – accessing talent, living our values, enhancing our reputation, improving the student experience, increasing outputs per academic head There have been recent improvements in policy and practice There remain worrying examples & some bias in outcomes. SOAS is undoubtedly vulnerable – legally and reputationally.
3 © Schneider~Ross S~R 2. Culture Change Culture change is critical because: it determines policy implementation. under-represented groups feel excluded or at least not valued. this influences aspiration levels and outputs as well as attrition. Requires consistent leadership – senior management, heads of department, trade union leaders. And a transformation in the perceived status of the task of management.
4 © Schneider~Ross S~R 3. Using Diversity to Stimulate Cultural Change Setting direction and engaging leaders: Create an Equality & Diversity Strategy Establish clear responsibilities & accountabilities Run diversity workshops for senior leaders Integrate into the planned HoDs handbook and induction programme.
