A raft of major social and legislative change over the last decade has led to NHS organisations increasingly taking steps to improve equality and diversity. Yet, more recent and high profile equality movements, amplified by the current pandemic, have drawn into sharp focus the need for more to be done if we are to promote and foster a truly inclusive workplace and culture.
In this latest webinar, delivered by DAC Beachcroft LLP, we will explore the impact of recent social equality movements and the current pandemic on key inclusivity issues affecting the NHS right now. This seminar will be of interest to L&D leads, HR professionals and line managers alike who have a role in ensuring inclusivity and equity across your workforce and the wider organisation.
We will focus on the practical steps which can be taken to ensure your organisation is equipped to overcome actual and perceived barriers to equality, and to deliver a truly inclusive and diverse organisation, such as:
- What is ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’ and why does it matter.
- Using the tools at your disposal for addressing the NHS staffing shortage in a diverse and inclusive way.
- Implementing mandated risk assessments for ‘at risk’ staff.
- The flexible workforce, post-pandemic.
- Spotting and stopping ‘micro-aggressions’.
