The University of Cambridge recognises the importance of strengthening equality and inclusion, and of promoting dignity, respect and a sense of belonging for people of all ethnicities and races.

The University became a member of the Race Equality Charter (REC) in September 2016.

The BAME Staff Network has being launched in 2018 to provide a space for staff who identify as BAME or have an interest in BAME matters to come together to support the development of race equality at the University.

It will act as a forum giving voice and visibility to BAME staff so that they can engage with the University through events, talks and communications relating to Cambridge’s equality, diversity and inclusion strategy and plans. The network will also provide an informal social space for people to share experiences in a confidential and supported environment. In addition, the network will act as a consultative body for the University, providing a perspective on race equality policy and initiatives (such as work on the Race Equality Charter).

Cambridge University Students Union (CUSU) facilitates support and networking for Black and Minority Ethnic students as part of its BME Campaign. Find out more here.
