Making visible the outstanding contributions of Black and Ethnic Minorities to the advancement of science and building capacity for them in executive leadership roles in UK Universities.
The purpose is to empower the young generation of Black and Ethnic Minorities through representation in key leadership roles, involved in the strategic planning of Universities, to give them a sense of pride and confidence.
A strategy will be developed in collaboration with academics, senior leadership teams across institutions, students, and other stakeholders. This will involve diagnosing the key problems and developing actions to tackle the problems.
