Charles’ support of diversity (continued…)
Charles, who was met by the college’s principal, Lord Woolley, said: “I could not be more pleased to hear about the excellent work being carried out to promote greater inclusion and diversity.
“As Lord Woolley knows, this is a subject which has always been close to my heart, and which I have sought to take forward, and to support, as much as possible much of my life.”
He added: “For our society to meet successfully the huge challenges before us, we will need all our talents and all our contributions.
“That is not simply a good intention – it is the most profound good sense.
“I have said before that our diversity is our greatest strength, and I become ever more convinced of that truth as time goes by and as I see fresh examples of that principle – as I do so clearly here today.”
The prince held a private meeting with Lord Woolley, who is also an equalities campaigner and the founder of Operation Black Vote.
He became the first black man to lead a college at Cambridge or Oxford after taking up his post last month.
He previously collaborated with the Prince’s Trust on addressing disadvantage among ethnic minority groups
