Black History Month 2022

Cambridge Judge celebrates Black History Month

To celebrate Black History Month 2022 – “Time for Change: Action Not Words” – we are hosting a “Saying NO to Racism” event on 18 October. The panel will discuss how to prevent racism and discrimination, exploring what it takes to get race equity cultures for everyone to belong, engage and thrive in.

Read what members of our community say Black History Month means to them:

Black History Month…

… is a time to commemorate how far our people have come and to serve as a reminder that there is still much more to be done.

Jeeva Bostic-Bradley, EMBA Programme Manager at Cambridge Judge Business School

… gives us a chance to celebrate things like the achievements of the Windrush generation in the UK; a group of people who have become all too relevant in the news cycle recently.

Kurt Samuels, Cambridge Judge Business School Database Administrator

… is an opportunity to remember and give life to many black histories which I was not taught in my early school days and later in other school curriculums as I grew older.

Luther Phillips, Accelerate Cambridge Programme Manager at Cambridge Judge Business School

… is a chance to stop and reflect on the journey black people have been on – from some of the very dark historical events, to moments of inspiration and leadership that have led to change.

Dr Othman Cole, Associate Professor in Management Practice (Finance) at Cambridge Judge Business School

… allows us to acknowledge and celebrate unknown and untold stories. It is an opportunity to appreciate the contributions of black people to society.

Shamiso Barnett, Head of the Cambridge MBA Programme
