Book Now: Anti-Racism Staff Development Activities

Throughout July, colleagues at LCC can develop their knowledge and skills in anti-racist practices through a range of synchronous and asynchronous activities happening as part of the expanded staff development month.


As part of LCC’s ongoing efforts to create an equitable and inclusive experience for all of its community, a series of new activities are on offer to staff through July. These are specifically aimed at developing anti-racist cultures and practices, in relation to creative practice, curricula and pedagogy, as well as leadership and management. 

The programme includes synchronous events for colleagues to join in real-time and a range of asynchronous activities and resources that can be engaged with off-line, at times that suit, including an evolving anti-racism resource list.

Activities will be running through a dedicated LCC Anti-racism Teams site. Colleagues can book onto the synchronous events through ESS and gain access to asynchronous activities by emailing staff development coordinator, Gifty Tingle:
