In 2016, Dr Akile Ahmet wrote a piece for the LSE Impact Blog entitled ‘We need to speak about race’: Examining the barriers to full and equal participation in university life’. Nearly five years on, she reflects on the state of Black and minority ethnic representation and inclusion in Higher Education. She finds that whilst her early call – to put race on the agenda- has been accommodated in the form of Equality and Diversity initiatives, this has not translated into change. She discusses her work on inclusive education and offers a call to action to transform anti-racism from a policy to a practice.
