The BAME Student in Engineering Network aims to raise awareness of the challenges faced by BAME groups in the work place by facilitating different workshops and events to promote diversity and to prepare students to enter the workforce.

Currently, the network has three work streams: Educate, Create Change, and Empower.

The network's objective is to:

  • Raise awareness of the challenges that BAME individuals face in organisations; the impact on their engagement, performance and career progression
  • Provide knowledge on how we can collectively create a more inclusive environment to support our BAME students
  • Provide tips for BAME students and staff on how to navigate institutions successfully

As part of the Black History Month sessions, we are hosting a session to look at one aspect of the modern concept of 'blackness'. Join two staff members who will share their experience of growing up in the United Kingdom as mixed white and black Africans. The talk will take you into schools, communities, home life and university through their eyes. There will be an opportunity to ask questions too, so come along keen to learn and get involved. All students and staff are welcome to come along!
