Be More Empowered for Success PGR Programme
This programme plays a key role in influencing positive change for home Black, Asian and minority ethnic postgraduate researchers (PGRs).
The initiative was developed recognising universities need to do more to support a diverse pipeline of postgraduate researchers in pursuit of their goals.
Our values are Community, Empathy, Trust, Impact and Collaboration.
The programme is co-developed by a group of existing postgraduate researchers (PGR Advocates), who bring their lived experience and understanding of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to the role.
The work we do focuses on 3 areas:
- “Access” to help support entry into postgraduate study
- “Belonging” to improve the postgraduate student experience
- “Empowerment” to build skills and connections
The PGR advocate programme builds on an existing highly successful undergraduate programme.
