SCONUL project on experience of BAME staff - Mon, 30 Jul 2018

SCONUL is pleased to announce the appointment of the University of the West of Scotland to carry out research into the experiences of BAME staff. The research will be led by Dr Mohammed Ishaq, Reader in Human Resource Management, School of Business and Enterprise, and will look at the experience of BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) staff working in academic libraries as the first part of a research project looking at supporting members in their aim of fostering ethnic diversity within their workforces. The work is being led by Regina Everitt (UEL), John Dowd (University of Birmingham) and Ann Rossiter (Executive Director, SCONUL) and is part of a broader programme being undertaken by the SCONUL Workforce Development Task and Finish Group. Other elements include work on the pipeline for the new talent development of the current workforce.
