Forever REN

We are still in contact with many people who used to work at King's but have now left. These are people who have contributed greatly to REN. We maintain collaboration opportunities with many key people outside of King's:

Whitney Robinson - former REN co-chair

Rebecca Brown - former REN committee member, now studying a PhD 

V.J - former REN committee member 

Rajbir Hazelwood - former REN senior supporter

 

Thank you also to former core committee member Olivia T 

 

 

Wider network 

The wider network are King's College London staff and students (PGR) who are not involved in the day-to-day running of the network but may still want to support the network, keep informed of REN news,  attend some of the events/meetings and sometimes wider network members also want to take part in/work on/lead a REN project.

This is a very flexible way of being part of the network 

 

If you want to join the network, please email RaceEqualityNetwork@kcl.ac.uk

 

 

Collaborations

The network is a King's College London staff and PGR student network. However, we have worked with many UG and PGT students also on many different projects across the years. Our events are open to everyone at King's and we have also, for example, offered UG & PGT students the opportunity to chair many of our events with high profile speakers (BAFTA winners, authors, actors, directors etc).
