BAME Staff Network & Dr. Jason Arday: Disrupting Racism in Higher Education

Friday 22 October 2021

This webinar is organised by the UoL BAME Staff Network; it is delivered by Dr. Jason Arday, Associate Professor in Sociology at Durham Uni.

 

Higher education is currently in a state of turbulence, as we begin to disrupt the systemic nature of racism throughout the sector. This talk focuses on the advancements we have collectively made over the last year in the response to the global wave of support for the BLM movement. Considerations will explore how we can continue to shift the dial moving forward as we continue to advance race equality within the sector and beyond.

Dr Jason Arday is an Associate Professor in Sociology at Durham University in the Department of Sociology and the Deputy Executive Dean for People and Culture in the Faculty of Social Science and Health. He is a Visiting Research Fellow at The Ohio State University in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Jason holds Visiting Professorships at Coventry University, London Metropolitan University and Nelson Mandela University. He is a Trustee of the Runnymede Trust, the UK’s leading Race Equality Thinktank and the British Sociological Association (BSA). Jason sits on the Centre for Labour and Social Studies (CLASS) National Advisory Panel and the NHS Race and Health Observatory Academic Reference Group. Jason is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA).
