Glasgow International is part of the leisure and culture trust Glasgow Life. It is Glasgow Life policy to use the acronym ‘BAME’. This language will be recognisable in public communications such as job adverts. Within the Glasgow International team we use the terms ‘black people’, ‘people of colour’ and ‘BIPOC’. We are aware of and involved in the complex discussions around identity and how individuals self-identify. Our thinking has been informed by events such as Inc arts #BAMEover conference. However we have to use the acronym BAME in legal documents such as job adverts. We decided to make a small post to communicate these differences for clarity when it comes to recruitment.
