Equity is a positive-action talent development programme aiming to improve BAME graduate outcomes through identity coaching, enterprise education and large networking events.
It marks a major departure from traditional diversity practice in Higher Education, and has received positive reception from external observers and city commentators for its innovation. You can find out more about the Equity Programme here
