The UEA Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Staff (BAME) Staff Network is a friendly, professional support network for colleagues across campus who identify as part of the BAME community.

BAME staff network logoWe meet regularly; discussing contemporary topics, feeding in to UEA policy and procedure, taking part in shared activities and projects as well as socialising and getting to know others across campus in a relaxed and friendly environment.
