Get to know GEMS network

Meet members from the longest running staff network at UAL: GEMS (Group for Equality of Minority Staff).

Find out about GEMS’ terms of reference, how ALL staff can support the network and its aims to empower staff of colour in their roles at UAL.

Learn about their plans for next academic year, including a Diasporic film season, Sounds of the Month vinyl listening club (launching in Black History Month), launch of a new logo and South Asian heritage month’s events. Contribute to our calendar of ideas for events to celebrate.

Discover GEMS’ intentions for collaborations with students, towards impacting curriculum design and aims towards keeping social and racial justice as an ongoing and crucial learning agenda at UAL.

Chat to our members about GEMS’ activation of education in informal places, such as Urgent Reads: an expanded reading group responding to critical and urgent moments in global, social and political circumstances, using design and creativity.

We can’t wait to meet you!
