Equality and Human Rights Commission: Racial Harrassment Survey

by | Dec 19, 2018 | News | 0 comments

If you have a moment, please complete this short 15 minute survey launched by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

The Commission have recently launched an inquiry to understand racial harassment in Higher Education. They want to hear from all students and staff who have experienced, witnessed or helped in an incident of racial harassment from September 2015 onwards.

Closing date: Friday 15 February 2019 at 11.59pm.

Research suggests a significant number of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) students and staff have experienced some form of racial harassment whilst either studying or working in Higher Education. Experiencing or witnessing behaviour like this can have a negative impact on a person’s sense of belonging and wellbeing. This in turn can have a detrimental effect on their progression whilst studying or in employment.

We believe that everyone has the right to live, work and study in an environment free from the fear of harassment or violence. I urge anyone who has experienced, witnessed or helped in an incident of racial harassment in Higher Education to complete the survey.

The University’s Speak Up! Stand Up!’ Campaign to be an active bystander and take action against all forms of harassment, hate crime and sexual violence. This survey is an opportunity for everyone to Speak Up! Stand Up! Call it out.
