B in Bath
A networking, support and social network for professionals from underrepresented backgrounds in the city of Bath and the surrounding area
We see a network as a powerful tool, not only to support its members, but as a resource to create change. Through collaboration, integration and community, we can create an environment where all can thrive.
When I launched B in Bath (Black in Bath) a few months ago, it was not as I had planned. Anyone who spoke to me about it at the time would know that it was the early launch of something I had long been planning.
I took part in a roundtable discussion with the MP for Bath, Wera Hobhouse. The discussion was around the lived-experience of being a Black person in Bath. The stories were both shocking and unsurprising. I have never been under the illusion that racism doesn’t exist in every facet of life, as I too experience it regularly. The question now remains, “what do we do now?”
