Nominations open for the Black Achievers Award 2019


July 31st, 2019

Nominations are live for the Black Achievers Awards, which will take place on 28 September 2019.

The Black Achievers Awards were initiated in 2012 by Nottingham City Councillor Merlita Bryan to recognise and promote the achievements of Nottingham’s black community. Categories include Young Achiever of the Year, Outstanding Parent of the Year, Most Transformed Life and the Community Volunteer Award.

This year, the University will be sponsoring the Learning, Skills and Employment Award. Previous winners of this category include nursing alumna Aquiline Chivinge, who was recognised for her work at Nottingham University Hospital as a positive role model for BME staff and students. Aquiline has swiftly progressed to the role of Matron after graduating with distinction from the University of Nottingham’s MSc in Advanced Nursing in 2015.

Cllr Merlita Bryan commented:
“Black men and women have experienced many years of negative press. We aim to change this by showing the local community that there are real, positive black role models out there.”

Nominations for all categories close on Friday 9 August 2019. To nominate a colleague, fellow student, or another member of our University community who inspires you, please visit blackachieversaward.co.uk/.
