Nature article on racism in academia

Kevin Laland, the School of Biology ED&I vice-chair, has written an article entitled “Racism in Academia, and why the ‘little things’ matter, which was published as a Nature article.

Kevin draws on his own experiences to highlight that it is not just the overt acts of racism that should be challenged – but also the subtle biases and structural inequalities.  He provides many suggestions on ways to reduce racism in academia via increased awareness, support, opportunities, and by making role models visible.  A full list of these suggestions is available here.

Congratulations Kevin!
