British Universities racial equality programmes

A charity has been spreading egregious wokery in English universities by charging them thousands to take part in a racial equality programme.
Advance HE has signed up dozens of British universities to its Race Equality Charter scheme, which advises them on ‘inclusive teaching’.
The training provider claims to help tackle racism on campus with ‘contemporary approaches’, but critics say its scheme is promoting toxic political ideology.
They say it is encouraging universities to obsess over woke issues such as trigger warnings and decolonising the curriculum.
The scheme has been compared to Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme, which has been dropped by some employers following concerns that it is extreme. Advance HE previously received millions in taxpayer funding but now relies on membership fees.
Universities compete for medals as part of the scheme, to prove that they are the most ‘inclusive’.
