The project will address both institutional and individual barriers experienced by Black, Asian and minority ethnic women at different stages of the PGR life cycle, through the delivery of a programme of training and strategic advice that recognises the impact of intersecting inequalities on access and progression in academic careers.
- Funding/partners to collaborate on bids and programme.
Available evidence of impact:
- Innovative practices emerging from programmes.
- Reduction in inequality within the PGR lifecycle for BAME PGRs.
- Increase in embedding EDI across the sector within PGR programmes for BAME students.
- Aims to lay foundations for long term increase of BAME female professors in UK HE institutions.

Implementation and potential challenges:
- Look at successful bids where programmes fit with social sciences to consider future bids internal or external opportunities.
- Access to funding streams – where to locate internal and externally to institutions.
- Potential collaborations – institutions or local organisations that would offer value and shared communities of practice.
- Culture change.
How to Use:
- Embedding equitable practices in the institutional PGR lifecycle.
- Pilot contextual offers/contextualised admissions.
- Design and implement workshops to support and engage current and future BAME PGR students.
- Create a network of support for BAME PGR students.
- Embed new learning and good practice beyond the life of the project.
