We hope that the series of events inspire, challenge and educate you in equal measure. We have invited a range of guests who will remind us of the challenges that lie ahead of us at local, national and international levels. We'll hear more about our progress on tackling the degree award gap at UEL, and how we are striving to be better at building bridges between people of different backgrounds to make anti-racism a key part of each individual's lived experience at UEL.
We will also acknowledge and celebrate the many successes in our local community, learning from those for whom success means keeping the pipeline of black talent open, inspiring tomorrow's leaders and creating a virtuous circle of progression.
So, we welcome you all to Black History Month, and encourage you to take part and engage in the events we have planned, and in your own unique way make it truly memorable.
The Office for Institutional Equity has created a 'front page' for all things BHM, so do pay regular visits there to see what is planned week by week.
As Mahatma Gandhi said, "Be the change that you wish to see in the world." The change we wish to see happens day by day, and person by person. Use this Black History Month to learn more about how you can play your part in the movement.
