This event is set out to explore and contribute to themes surrounding equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). There will be key speakers to bring EDI into focus, brief presentations, and a final EDI panel discussion.
The Colloquium will address the following questions:
What does EDI look like in your current programme of studies or curriculum?
How does this relate to work and learning practice from past decades?
What does EDI look like in the workplace?
Are there areas of synergy or dissonance between educational and workplaces?

Middlesex Work and Learning Research Centre Colloquium
Equality Diversity and Inclusion: championing work and learning that empowers and sustains change
Come and join us!
Event date: 30th June 2021
The event will consider the following themes:
How EDI issues are championed within learning and work studies e.g. work-integrated learning (WIL), apprenticeships, placements, internships, continuing education, doctoral studies, staff training, voluntary and community context, coaching, part-time and full-time work-based learning (note that work can be considered as paid or unpaid).
Power and social justice – looking at EDI activism in today’s higher education setting.
Organisational and partnership imperatives for EDI
How do we align and reconcile older practices with newer practices in EDI?
Decolonising the curriculum, what needs to happen?
Ageism and working with various generations (mature students to apprenticeships).
Policy and practice, realising social justice goals – case studies that champion change
We invite delegates to suggest further collaborative topics for the day’s discussion.
Proposals from new practitioners and researchers are particularly welcome.
Please send your 300 word abstract for a poster or paper by Sunday the 6th June 2021.
As an option we would like to invite volunteers to do a 4 min presentation on your EDI theme and plan to put the day’s contributions on our network website to share with others.
We further invite you to write up your work as a paper for the Work Based Learning e-Journal International
