Black Lives Matter
The pain in the world is palpable following the death of George Floyd. Our Forum has written a statement in support of the ‘Black lives matter ‘movement , acknowledging this is a difficult time for BME communities and staff.
We recognise that people want to help and are unsure how to do this. The NABMEF have put together this short resource to provide guidance of how you can support your own education on this topic and become an active ally.
We thought this post from St. Emlyn's about social bias and privilege was fantastic:
Privilege is the special advantage granted to a particular group of people. In order to maintain privilege, inclusion to the group must be selective.Sometimes highly selective: the advantage of belonging to a select group reduces as inclusion becomes less selective when membership increases.
