Priorities of the Race Justice Strategy Board for academic year 2022-2023 include, but are not limited to: 

  1. Monitoring and overseeing progress of the Strategic Objectives set out in the Strategic Framework, monitoring outcomes against agreed performance indicators to measure the impact of interventions. 

  2. Reviewing and approving business cases, project plans and project closures that come out of the Strategic Framework and implemented by the Race Equality Charter Self-Assessment Team (REC SAT). 

  3. Acting as a point of escalation for race related risks and issues across the College; identifying risks and issues and advising on mitigating actions.

  4. Receiving reports from projects overseen by the board on risks and issues. To support projects that have escalated risks and issues that cannot be managed by the project team and require advice, guidance, or support.
