BAME careers and beyond
The University Careers Service are holding a speed networking event for BAME students on the 2nd April, from 5-7.30pm in The Atrium in partnership with the SU’s Diversity and Inclusion Ambassador Team.
The session looks to provide employers and students with an opportunity to talk about the importance of diversity and equality in the workplace. We have invited 12 speakers from BAME backgrounds, from a variety of sectors to talk about their experiences regarding employability and what it’s like to work for an organisation as a BAME member of staff.
The aim of the event is to spark discussions between students and employers about any concerns about being BAME in the workplace, and how to potentially overcome these obstacles. Students can sign up using Eventbrite.
The Careers Service will be posting more information leading up to the event on Facebook.
