Under the leadership of the current Vice Chancellor: Professor Adam Habib; new and significant contributions have been made to develop a diversified academy at Wits over the past 7 to 8 years. Diversifying the Academy (DTA) in relation to increasing the representation of Coloured and African academics forms part of the Transformation Pillars of the University. Policies, structures and resourcing have been mobilised to enable this development. This webinar presents a moment of reflection on the successes, shortcomings and future of the program in conversation with the current and incoming Vice-Chancellors. This is an opportunity for faculty to engage with the Vice-Chancellors and advise on equity initiatives of this nature at Wits and how academics believe such initiatives can be enhanced.
