The Race Equality Network (formally BAME Staff Network) aims to highlight the issue of race inequality at the University and provides a space to discuss, question, challenge and take action where necessary to promote race equality and diversity.
You don't have to be from a minority ethnic background to join the Network, as long as you have a passion about race equality then you are welcome.
Black Lives Matter
We are not going to be silent about the brutal murder of yet another Black man - George Floyd - whose death by ex-police David Chauvin was graphically played out for the whole world to see. The killing of black people by officers who are sworn in to ‘protect and serve’ becomes a ‘normalised’ activity because Black Lives Don’t Seem to Matter. We are all feeling hurt, anger and despair as justice for George Floyd and for all those black lives taken away for talking, walking, driving, shopping, praying or just standing. This affects us all.
