Equality and Diversity

Multicultural Staff Network

For academic year 2017/18 the University's Black or Minority Ethnic (BME) staff made up 8% of the workforce. The Multicultural Staff Network exists for all staff who consider themselves BME or have an interest in this diversity of cultures within the University. The staff network affords members the opportunity for:

  • Personal support and advice
  • Information and experience sharing
  • Networking; and
  • Involvement in University activities and events

The current membership is incredibly diverse, the nationalities represented include Irish, Indonesian, Indian and Greek among others. The Network looks to meet quarterly and has an elected chair and vice-chair.


 The network communicates to its members through a private google community, so if you would like to join the community please sign up here
