Sign up to join us for our free Festival of Social Sciences 2022 workshop on 9th November exploring gendered inequalities in STEM using eco-mapping approaches, in person in Glasgow.
CR&DALL project Gendered Journeys (comprising teams from the University of Rwanda, Indian Institute of Management Calcutta, and the University of Glasgow) held a fantastically successful international team retreat recently at the Seamill Hydro in North Ayrshire, Scotland.
This report presents research that provides an understanding of the current impact of the low levels of investment in training in the UK and, in addition, tries to quantify how many people’s potential contribution to society is being squandered as a result of not having access to regular skills development. And the inevitable impact of that on social mobility.
This report by Christine Farquharson, Sandra McNally & Imran Tahir draws on extensive evidence to further our understanding of education inequalities in today’s world. The focus is education inequalities in the United Kingdom (UK), and predominantly in England.
The report by Yasmin White, Tom Bradley, Beccy Packer & Emily Jones demonstrates a stark disconnect between increasing employer demand for green skills and young people’s lack of knowledge. A lack of awareness of green jobs and what qualifications support progression to these roles is thwarting young people’s aspirations for careers that can combat climate change and drive clean growth.

Emeritus Professor Lalage Bown, OBE died in Shrewsbury hospital on 17 December 2021, aged 94, following a fall at home. An eminent women’s literacy advocate, she dedicated her life’s work to improving education for the disadvantaged, especially women, seeking to bring university opportunities to the widest possible sections of society.
There is an urgent need to address the structural and everyday racism that exists in education systems across the world. Black, Indigenous and minority ethnic children are being systematically failed by schooling systems. Curriculum often fails to represent and affirm the diversity of language and culture. School practices can reproduce rather than challenge racial hierarchies. The inequitable financing and marketisation of school systems entrench racialised segregation and exclusion.
