We are seeking mentees and mentors for B-MEntor, the cross-institutional London-wide mentoring scheme for academic and research staff from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) backgrounds.
B-MEntor, which is being run in partnership with Queen Mary University and Kings College London, supports UCL’s work to progress race equality under the Race Equality Charter Mark.
The requirements for participation in this scheme are as follows:
- Mentors: must be at Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professorial level. Mentors can be from any ethnic background.
- Mentees: should be from post-doc to lecturer level and self-identify as being from a Black and Minority Ethnic background. i.e. not white European.
We would particularly like to encourage staff of Black origin to join the scheme as they are under-represented as academics and researchers in UCL overall.
The mentoring period will be approximately one year and a training and support package is offered for all parties. The selection and matching of mentor and mentees will take place at the end of January.
Please submit expressions of interest by Friday, 6 December 2019 . Complete the appropriate form on the BMEntor Academic webpage and send to Sonal Bharadva.
Please contact Teresa Williams if you have any queries about this scheme. A full list of FAQs can be found on the B-MEntor webpage above.
