The Being You Hub

The Being You Hub

As part of the Being You Network, we are also proud to host The Being You Hub, a place for underrepresented and under-resourced professionals and academics in Higher Education to connect with likeminded people, to seek advice and support for their career pathways.  

Often, individuals want to connect with someone they identify with for advice on an application or support with interview skills. This can be particularly helpful for individuals with protected characteristics to get advice and feedback from others with shared lived experiences.   

There are already many valuable resources and networks for individual protected characteristics and at BNU we are proud to add value to this space with the 'Being You' Hub, an intersectional space for people with protected characteristics to meet advocates, allies, mentors, and coaches in Higher Education who they can simply reach out too for career advice. 

Below is a list of HE professionals in our Being You Hub. Please use the contact form below to get in touch.
