We are pleased to share the announcement that the CUCD has released their Equality and Diversity in Classics Report. The report is the final output of the CUCD Equality and Diversity Project, 2019-20. The report can be found here. The report presents and analyses the results of two surveys that were disseminated in 2019. The Experience Survey aimed to take a snapshot of the field of classics and explored experiences of discrimination and barriers to progression among postgraduate and staff experiences. The Departmental Contexts Survey examined departmental policies and contexts, with input from Heads of Department and Equality Officers. A summary of the data used to compile the report can be found here. The report complements the WCC’s own survey and report, Women in Classics in the UK: Numbers and Issues (2016).
The report will be formally launched on the 25th of November 2020 in an event hosted by the ICS from 1-3:15 pm.
The launch event includes brief presentations by the co-authors of the report, Helen Lovatt and Victoria Leonard.
A panel of experts will present their own responses to the report, followed by discussion, and finally a Q and A session.
