BME Dialogue Group

Welcome to our race and ethnicity page. We have a Google group: [email protected] which has already accumulated a variety of links and resources. It is a closed group – i.e. you need to ask to join (see below).

The impetus for the Google group was the pain of the experience of black and ethnic minority (BEM) members at the Speakeasy, and subsequently in Community, at the BAPCA Conference in August last year. We should not ignore, too, Bernard Mooney’s concern about the lack of BEM members in BAPCA which he has been raising for many years.

What were we/are we doing wrong? What are we unaware of? What is the, often unconscious, baggage of the white majority? Members of the BME-dialogue group have already pointed us to many thought provoking papers and presentations (as listed below) and I urge you all to look at them, and engage in the dialogue – through PCQ, the BME-Dialogue group, and offerings for the website page.

We have curated 60 papers of relevance -, a further collection of papers here and the contents of this collection.
