In her role, Mehrunnisa led and facilitated a cultural transformation of ED&I within the University by developing a cohesive strategic approach to ED&I.
This is part one of a three-part conversation where Mehrunnisa and Akhil discuss race, ED&I and her time at the University of Manchester. In this section they explore how organisations can be anti-racist, the pandemic’s impact on practicing ED&I in Higher Education and the government’s Race and Ethnic Disparities report.
