The Race Equality Task Force was announced in the Vice-Chancellor’s Oration in October 2020. The Task Force held a consultation last term (Michaelmas 2021).
Thank you to everyone who shared their views on the proposed measures for tackling the under-representation of racial minorities at Oxford. There were more than 1,100 responses to the consultation in Michaelmas term, and members of the Task Force will now analyse the data and responses received. The results will then be incorporated into a guiding strategy document, the outcomes of which is expected to be finalised in Trinity term.
The Race Equality Task Force is important to not only bring the topic of diversity and inclusion within the University to the table, but to also consider the practical steps that can be made in order to achieve sustainable change.
Oxford University is unequivocal in its opposition to racism and discrimination, and we are committed to addressing systemic racism within our own community.
