This event took place on 26 June at 2pm, UK time.
Making higher education systems inclusive and connected to society requires providing the right conditions for students of different backgrounds to succeed. This goes beyond the question of offering financial support to disadvantaged groups, to encompass holistic approaches to admissions, teaching and assessment and the provision of both academic and non-academic support.
Anchored by the findings from the newly released 2020 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report from UNESCO on inclusion and education, this interactive panel discussion will examine evidence based policies to enhance diversity and inclusion in higher education.
This session was chaired by Michael Peak, HE Research Lead at the British Council. Our speakers were:
- Anna Cristina D'Addio - Economist and Senior Policy Analyst for UNESCO's GEM Report
- Liesbet Peeters - Founder and managing partner of Volta Capital
- Dr Tania Lima - Director of Global Engagement at King's College, London
