What is

Question marks

The Edinburgh Race Equality Network?:

The EREN was set up to provide a place for Staff at the University of Edinburgh to discuss and support BAME issues and experiences. Aligned with the Diversity and Equality function of the University, the Network looks to create events, support the community and encourage the University to be more egalitarian, more diverse and fair.

For more about EREN you can find our pages at

This Blog?:

One of the early projects mooted within the Network was the creation of a space to collate and record the experiences of BAME staff within the University. Starting from a couple of entries the hope is that it will become a home for many different voices, outlining their experiences and in time, showing how things have changed.
