A pilot cross-institutional mentoring scheme for Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) academics and researchers is in place.
The scheme is aimed at BME academics and researchers from post-doc to lecturer level
The mentors are academics and researchers from any ethnic background at senior lecturer level or above
Mentoring is based on exchanging experiences, ideas and feedback between the two parties. It helps to promote understanding of formal and informal structures, enhances opportunities for staff to develop and build skills and knowledge and enables continuing professional development and personal growth.
