At this time, we see anger, confusion and hurt around the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. We also see the high death rate for non-white people from COVID-19. Now, more than ever, a safe space to reflect, talk and be listened to, is required to support non-white staff
The People of Colour Staff Network was formally set up in June 2020 and is open to all non-white staff at the University of Lincoln. We are the first non-white staff support group to be set up at the University of Lincoln.
If you are interested in joining the POC Staff Network, or would like more information, please contact us.
The network is coordinated by our four co-chairs:
