Celebrate Black History Month at CUH

October is Black History Month, a time when we celebrate, educate and talk about the achievements and contributions of black people, not just in the UK, but throughout the world.

Black History Month is an opportunity for everyone across the Trust to celebrate the contributions of our black colleagues, to educate one another on the inequalities experienced by people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and to inspire one another to maintain and further develop an inclusive and diverse culture which is supportive and welcoming for all.



CUH promotes equality and inclusion for all staff and we are delighted to share a programme of events for all to enjoy. Our BAME network has organised some events for CUH staff. And the East of England Black History Month programme for September-October 2021 is also available to download on Connect. Click here for a list of the events.
