Multicultural Staff Network’s new year gathering

New year, new beginning!

The Multicultural Staff Network would like to invite one and all to the first staff gathering of the year on Wednesday 23 January.

The network has been in existence for a number of years. We help shape some of the University policies on equality and diversity and represent the concerns of the ethnically diverse staff of this University.

As we begin work on the Race Equality Charter, your contribution is more important than ever and we sincerely hope that you will play your part, adding your voice to the process and helping us all to make the University a fairer place to work.

We want the gathering to be sociable and fun, so after a short welcome by Equality and Diversity Champion, Professor Sherria Hoskins, we will play a fun quiz to test our knowledge of the different cultures and to get to know each other better (and win some prizes). Do send me a question for the quiz (and the answer) and rejoice in the knowledge that you can at least get one answer right!

Feel free to bring an item from your culture to show – we could all add to our wealth of knowledge and be a more global and inclusive community!

Meet on 23 January in room 1.11 at the Dennis Sciama Building, 1-2 pm. Light lunch will be provided, although you’re welcome to bring a little something to share.

Don’t forget to let Maricar Jagger, the Chair of the network, know (register on Eventbrite) if you’re coming so we can plan the right amount of catering.

See you there!
