A Case Study on ED&I in Higher Education: Part Three

Akhil Yerneni is a Senior Consultant at Anderson Quigley, specialising in Higher Education leadership and executive recruitment. He worked with Mehrunnisa Lalani to secure her placement as an Interim Director of ED&I at the University of Manchester. 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 three of a three-part conversation where Mehrunnisa and Akhil discuss race, ED&I and the University of Manchester. In this section they explore her role at the University of Manchester and the objectives and initiatives she worked on and how organisations can create a psychologically safe culture that empowers people to speak up.
