The point that the RHS report makes so brilliantly, and that critics (and some supporters) keep missing is: diversifying scholarship benefits us all. It denaturalises whiteness & Eurocentrism, & defamiliarises present power hierarchies. The report's critics only prove it's value.

Short term: Mellon-Mays-style programs. Also short term: Root out the culture of denial that makes UKHE a constant supplier of microaggressions. Medium term: shift out of assumptions that bureaucracy eliminates bias. Long term: deal with primary/secondary education.

"Our national history cannot be national if, in the near future, one in three young adults feels their stories remain untold... and if the historical reality of race is rendered almost invisible." gets to the heart of the implications of the Report

I also love the image we chose to illustrate the report page, of these Caribbean women in Britain serving in the ATS in 1943. How we practice, teach, and portray history all matter.

Diversity & quality go together! As our race & ethnicity report (and our forthcoming gender equality report) emphasise, "policies on diversity & inclusion constitute an essential, integral component of our wider pursuit of excellence & innovation in the discipline".
