This could include but not be limited to top students who have set/broken academic records in academia, a lecturer/professional who has won awards for excellent performance at work, a sports person/entertainer who participated in regional/national/global events.

 

B.E. Enable

This aspect will cover resources and tools that will enable and empower users in their various endeavours in the workplace, at school and in life in general.  Articles on how to excel in academics, career, business, etc will be featured here.

 

B.E. Achievements

This aspect of the B. E. Network (Loughborough) aims to promote businesses and services run by black people in Loughborough. This could be a small business (e.g. Sami’s) or service which could either be run by black people or the service/product itself is used by this community.

This will provide a platform for members of the community to send in their songs, poems, spoken word (video or text). Other artistic media not covered above will also be accepted.

 

B.E. Volunteering

This will be the volunteering arm of the B.E. network. Asides from the members that make up the core structure of the B.E. network, all other support staff are volunteers who share the vision of the group. Opportunities to volunteer in different roles will be advertised and depending upon the responses received, candidates will be assessed and interviewed.
