Loughborough establishes race and anti-racism reading and reflection group

In the wake of killings by the police in America, including those of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, there has been a desire from colleagues across the University to increase individual knowledge and awareness of racism, how it manifests in our society and how people can play their part in becoming anti-racist and eradicating racism at Loughborough.

The University has set up a race and anti-racism reading and reflection group which is open to all staff members. However, we are keen to encourage as many white colleagues as possible to join the group.

The group will focus on three central objectives – read, reflect and reform. They aim to do this by:

  • Disseminating a relevant piece of writing such as an article or blog approximately fortnightly for members to read
  • Establishing a discussion forum for people to share personal reflections and discuss complex matters
  • Encouraging members to put reflections into practice in their actions both at and outside of work

If you would like to join this group, please email 

The University has been working on its Race Equality Charter submission since 2019, and this initiative is one of many that is currently progressing in order to eradicate racism at Loughborough.
