The University of Nottingham is dedicated to improving the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students within higher education. As part of this goal, the University aims to achieve an ECU Race Equality Charter Bronze Award by 2020.
In order to successfully make an impact for BME staff and students, we need a committed group of individuals representing a broad range of areas to do this work. As a result, we are delighted to offer you the opportunity to join the institutional race equality self-assessment team through one of the following roles:

To give adequate time for consideration of these complex challenges, participation in the institutional self-assessment team is likely to require 0.05FTE in addition to attendance at quarterly SAT meetings.

We are particularly keen to hear from black and ethnic staff and students who would be able to share their experiences at the University.
To nominate yourself, or to discuss the roles further in confidence, please email Justine Wallis-Leggett. The deadline for expressions of interest is Monday 14 May.
