Race Equality at Cambridge

Race Equality Network - Black History Month 2021

The Race Equality Network is a community for staff members who self-identify as being from a racial minority ethnic background and/or who have an interest in the topic of race and would like to contribute to anti-racism initiatives at the University. 

It aims to create a sense of belonging by providing a safe forum to network, socialise  share, question, challenge and receive support and advice in relation to race equality. The Network aspires to be a consultative body for the University and colleges, providing a perspective and authoritative voice on race-related policy and initiatives.

The aim is for ownership of the network to lie within its membership who will have appropriate support and connections. The network’s main goal is to translate discussions into tangible actions to improve the staff experience for those from racial minority ethnic backgrounds at the University of Cambridge.'
