What is the LJMU Ethnically Diverse Staff Network and what do they do?

The LJMU Ethnically Diverse Staff Network is open to staff whom identify as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, in the first instance.

  • Provide creative and clear pathways to encourage promotion to higher grades
  • Help create a culturally inclusive campus
