The award gap is a deeply rooted inequality issue within higher education institutions (HEIs) (Mowat, 2018) and there has been an increased call for HEIs to pick up the pace of eliminating this gap (UUK, 2019, OfS, 2020). Successful interventions exist but these are ad hoc rather than systematic and tied to specific programmes within individual HEIs. Therefore, there is a need to scale these up across HEIs to meet the ambitious target set by universities (OfS, 2020). To achieve this, collaboration between HEIs is essential where meaningful dialogues can occur, and best practices can be shared. Currently, there are not many forums or opportunities for doing this. To meet this need, the Northwest Award Gap Group (NWAGG), a collective of academics from across north-west business and law schools (with similar demographic profiles), was set up with the aim of working towards eliminating the award gaps for Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) student groups.
