BAME Staff network

Who we are

We are here to create a community for both academic and professional members of staff from Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, where we can connect with each other and feel a sense of belonging. Through sharing our experiences, we want to bring new perspectives and fresh ideas that helps drive change to ensure that the University of Bristol is welcoming to all.

  • Peer support, guidance and signposting to appropriate services both within and outside the organisation where appropriate.
  • Work with HR, through the Co-Chairs and Committee, to contribute to the development of policies and initiatives, and to ensure that BAME staff have a consistent and positive experience at the University.
