UoB celebrates opening of Green Heart with Instagram of multiple old white men

Check out that diversity


The University of Birmingham announced the opening of its new Green Heart Project on Instagram this afternoon, but there was one thing missing.

Literally any diversity.

The full picture

Aside from one woman, the image pictured 13 white men in front of the heavily-criticised Green Heart Project.

The post has fallen flat with alumni and followers, with users commenting: "This picture represents UoB so well, old white men in front of a white elephant building project". Another commented: "Looks like the start of the Purge".

This follows findings that the University of Birmingham has a 23 per cent pay gap, with only 37.3 per cent of women holding higher paid jobs at UoB.

The post has received 55 comments in the last two hours.
