Sheffield Hallam University run the Equity Accomplice Programme which aims to support student-facing staff across the institution to develop their own racial literacy. Initially set up with the support of Dr Lindy-Ann Blaize Alfred, the programme creates spaces for staff to have difficult conversations and grow in confidence about being able to talk about race to eventually become anti-racist practitioners.
We are joined by Claire Walsh and Ifrah Salih from the Department of Academic Development and Inclusivity at Sheffield Hallam University. The CoDHcast highlights the importance of all people to be engaged in those challenging conversations about race, no matter their racial background, and calls upon staff to move from being non-racist and allies to equity accomplices. Claire and Ifrah also share their advice for other members who may be interested in running a similar programme in their own institutions.
