A guide to race and ethnicity terminology and language, published by The Law Society in December 2020, suggests the acronyms BAME and BME: ‘… are used to refer to people of non-White ethnicities who are minoritised in the UK. Note that these categories do not include White minority ethnic groups and they do include those who identify as having a mixed ethnicity. Both BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) and BME (Black and minority ethnic) are often used when making comparisons with the White population in the UK and reflect a common way of gathering and collating statistics, for example, by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and in company diversity monitoring.’
