Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic Staff Network

A person is defined as BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) if they are African, East Asian, South Asian, South East Asian, Chinese, Caribbean, Latinx or self-define as belonging to a minority ethnic group. 

The Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Network has been established by the University of Nottingham for all staff regardless of grade, job family, or contract length.  

The aims of the BAME Staff Network are: 

  • Provide a forum for BAME staff to network and at which we can discuss issues of specific interest that have an effect on us; 
  • Provide professional support and information about how individual issues may be raised; 
  • Act as a voice for BAME staff offering a source of consultation and a means of communicating with the University about BAME issues in relation to University policies and practices; and 
  • Assist with policy development on BAME issues by providing advice and feedback to Human Resources and other relevant University committees 

The BAME Staff Network is delighted to welcome new members and contributions from existing members.  Flexibility in our approach is key to ensure all staff who wish to be involved can be, this includes those colleagues who work shift patterns. 

Members can communicate with the group through the BAME staff network Microsoft Teams site, which is a members' only space. 

Membership of the network remains confidential.
