The existing EIS Glasgow BAME Network has provided the opportunity for BAME Members within the Glasgow Local Authority to come together and share their experiences. During the pandemic, this Network has served as an important conduit for BAME voices within the Union.
The EIS Equality Department are now working with the EIS Glasgow BAME Network to develop a National Network for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Members.
This Network will be a space for BAME teaching professionals across Scotland to make connections and host discussions, whilst also providing specific training opportunities to address the prevailing barriers that exist for BAME teachers, and to grow your Union leadership skills.
The national BAME Network is being formed as a distinct space for EIS members who identify as Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic. To register to join the Network, please contact John Harris.
The first meeting of the BAME Network will involve;
Welcome and background to the Network and EIS’ anti-racist work
Wellbeing and self-care in the context of Covid19 and BLM
If you have any questions please contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org
