Generally, university can be a very isolating experience for ethnic minority students which can affect us not just mentally, but also academically too. As suggested by the recent NUS reportLink opens in a new window, This group has created this page to help combat this.
What is the aim of this network?
The goal of the Warwick Ethnic Minorities in Physics Network (WENP) is to work towards a more diverse workforce in physics at the postgraduate level and above. To achieve this, we aim to create a more inclusive environment for ethnic minorities, to raise awareness of the different initiatives and opportunities the university has to offer regarding equality, diversity, and inclusion, and to support the creation of new opportunities and events.
We will be running meet ups on the last wednesday of every month where people in the network have the chance to socialise (networking and meeting and reconnecting face-to-face with people across the department)and share ideas and experiences.
The network will be hosting speaker events once every term. See events page for more info.
If you have any problems or you want to ask more questions, please feel free to get in touch.
