The challenges facing Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) academics and students in higher education will be explored in an event at the University of Greenwich on Thursday 27 October.

Among the themes of the one-day symposium are the potential impact of Brexit on BME graduates and professionals, their perceptions of the student experience, and a discussion of good practice for raising employability rates at local and national level.

The event will highlight experiences through personal stories and creative arts, as well as reflections on policy and common practice. A roundtable discussion will also take place, titled Making action beat intention.

Speakers from the University of Greenwich include Adelola Solanke, a prize-winning playwright and performer; Noel Anne Bradshaw, Faculty Director, Employability; and Richard Mendez, Head of Employability and Careers Service.  More
