Join us to hear from Khadija Mohammed, Programme Leader and Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in the School of Education and Social Sciences, speaking about her experience of tackling racism on campus and answering questions from participants.

In October 2019 the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published its inquiry into racial harassment in publicly funded universities in Wales, Scotland and England. It recognised that there needed to be a change in university culture and that leaders needed to understand the issues, set expectations, provide oversight and scrutiny and embed a culture which is free from harassment and supports good relations.

Khadija is a Senior Lecturer at the University of the West of Scotland. She co-founded and Chairs SAMEE, a community-led organisation providing support to educators and those in support and guidance roles across the Scottish Education system. She is the first BME Muslim educator to be elected as the Vice-Convener of the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS). Khadija chairs the Advance HE/Scottish Funding Council project ‘Tackling Racial Harassment in Universities and Colleges’ and the Scottish Government Curriculum Reform group: Developing an Anti-Racist Curriculum.
