UCL and Tohoku University are institutions located in contrasting cultural, socio-economic and institutional contexts – but share a common mission to promote the EDI agenda. This project was jointly developed to share best practice in tackling EDI and research culture challenges.

In Japan, diversity, equality and inclusion is a burgeoning issue in the higher education sector as the national landscape and society have become increasingly complex and diverse.

In this joint CGHE/Tohoku University seminar, the speakers will focus on the context in which Japanese universities are situated, explain from multiple perspectives what structural problems are preventing the diversification of researchers, and show how Tohoku University is working to address these challenges.
