The goal of this meeting is to encourage discussion in the UKHE mathematics community on these topics, as well as to identify effective interventions. This workshop will take place over two days in January as a virtual workshop, hosted by ICMS. Speakers and discussion will focus on three interlinking themes: diversity in the history of mathematics, racial considerations in the interaction of mathematics and statistics with society, and inclusive pedagogy. The event will aim to identify strategies that can be easily implemented within existing modules as well as longer term goals on which the mathematics community could collaborate moving into the future.

This workshop will take place over two afternoons on Tuesday 25  and Wednesday  26 January. The first day will focus on history and personal narratives; the second day will examine inclusive pedagogy and ethics. There will be generous time set aside for break out groups and discussions.
