BAMEish

Transforming how we define Inclusion


 
 

The BAMEish network aims to create a space for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Staff to feel visible, valued and culturally recognised. A community where members and allies come together to address racism and transform how we define inclusion.

The network is a creative, social, and political space to reclaim agency within the workplace. We especially would like to encourage people of colour (POC) at Edinburgh Napier to get in touch. Let us know you exist! Join the network and feel represented.
