Understanding the lived experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students
Delivered by Shames Maskeen, Lecturer in Developmental Psychology, Leeds Trinity University and funded by Go Higher West Yorkshire, Uni Connect Programme.
This session will explore ways Higher Education (HE) institutions can ensure that their outreach and recruitment strategies are inclusive of the lived experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students. This session will draw upon three studies as part of a PhD which explore the barriers and facilitators towards the participation of the Pakistanis and Bangladeshis in HE. As well as the work of Leeds Trinity University’s Race Equality Chartermark. There will also be dedicated time for questions and answers.
Key focus and takeaways:
• The importance of disaggregating the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic category in data analysis and taking an intersectional approach to widening participation activities
• How to ensure outreach and recruitment strategies are inclusive of the lived experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students
• Utilising Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic role models to increase students’ self-belief and sense of belonging
This session is open to all but we encourage attendance from EDI focused teams and Senior/ Executive Leadership Teams.
