Network for Ethnic Minority Postgrads


NEMP is a community of postgraduates from minority ethnic backgrounds at Warwick. We share our experiences and support each other. Each of us will have different experiences and perspectives. Together we can call upon these resources and help each other to progress.

Our aims

It is easy for ethnic minority students to feel disconnected and underrepresented within their departments. Being able to discuss these feelings with one another may help us feel validated and understood. We want to bring together postgraduates and create a space for them to have these discussions, so they don't have to happen by chance. We do this by organising events, including book clubs, seminars and our very popular Diversitea, every Wednesday morning at 10:30 (in hybrid format).


A call for help

We are looking for volunteers to help with organising events and hosting the weekly Diversitea morning chat. If you are interested please email us at


Diversitea sessions on Wednesday have been replaced with Lunch Time Board Games at (Location TBC) every Friday from 12-1pm.


If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, we'd love to hear from you.

You can also reach out to individual organisers:
