Edinburgh Racial Equality Network

Reading time: < 1 minute
In recent weeks the Black Lives Matter movement has touched everyone and brought many thought-provoking issues into the light. It seems fitting to take this chance to encourage those feeling vulnerable or those wanting to champion change to join the Edinburgh Racial Equality Network (EREN).

With the University’s Strategy 2030 centring on People as a key strategic area for our future the network’s commitment to creating an environment where race is celebrated and everyone is treated fairly will be a key part of this work.

EREN have recently organised new webpages on the Equality and Diversity site sharing their values and principals, and how they will be working to achieve these goals.

Membership is open to any member of staff who supports the values and purpose of the network. The network is looking to recruit members from all walks of the University to build a strong group that demonstrates the diversity of academic contributors and the support of allies. Members must maintain the confidentiality of sensitive information and are expected to make a meaningful contribution to the group.
