Race Equality Network (REN)
Face to face network
The Race Equality Network was formally launched on Thursday 29th October 2009 at Wadham College. Dr David Mills, from the Department of Education, delivered a presentation on “Learning Differently, Teaching inclusively”. The keynote speech was delivered by Karen Chouhan, Director of Equanomics and one of the Joseph Rowntree’s visionaries.
The aims of the network are:
To provide an opportunity to network and socialise
To promote understanding between people of all races and cultures
To provide a discussion forum for cultural issues/matters (this is not a forum to discuss grievances or disciplinary matters)
To support each other and share ideas both face-to-face and online
The network is open to all members of staff and students from all backgrounds, ethnicities and races.
If you would like to be part of the on-line race equality network please email the email@example.com to join the mailing list. You will receive a weekly email on events around the University and city, relevant links to articles, and upcoming news.

Something that came out loud and clear in the consultation was members wanted a space to chat, blog and share ideas. As a result a space on WebLearn has been created for you do to this. You can see the latest news, view feeds from the Institute of Race Relations, and add events on the calendar. This is a great space for people to chat, exchange ideas, and publicise information.
