Educators face significant challenges in terms of representation, pedagogy, curriculum reform and student experience. BAME students do not do as well at university compared with their White counterparts the latest statistics show a 13% attainment gap.

BAME staff are poorly represented in both senior academic and university leadership roles: of 19,000 people employed as professors in the UK, only 400 are BAME women. In a typical gathering of 100 professors, 90 would be white and there would be just two BAME women. Baroness Valarie Amos, Director, SOAS University of London.

What does this mean for the future of our children?
