Diverse Engagement key points:
  •  Actors from Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust’s award-winning Equalities Theatre Forum engaged in a participative theatre style session profiling different types of discrimination, inappropriate language and behaviour, as well as unconscious and conscious bias and exclusion. 
  • Delegates watched a series of short acted-out scenarios that, whilst fictional, were based on real-life experiences and were designed to shock and generate a reaction from the audience.
  • Some of the content made the audience laugh, some aspects made them feel uncomfortable yet it was clear from the discussions that the scenarios made delegates aware of the impact of prejudices and biases and the need to challenge the way that we all think and operate.
Diverse Thinking key points:
  • The more diverse the thoughts the better equipped we are able to make and respond to transformational change.
  • Neurodiversity: embrace it ! We all have one brain, different wiring, different experiences. We can all contribute equally. Some with pictures, some with words....
  • How do we become more aware and manage and include our difference?
  • We know this stuff ....its common sense, so what gets in the way of us doing it? (Culture, “someone else's responsibility”, unconscious bias, perceived costs, too action orientated etc). Change starts with you!
  • Get out of your comfort zone...that's where the magic happens!
  • Keep it simple! It’s not rocket science! view useful links from Leena Haque, BBC Neurodiversity Lead
Diverse Data: 
  • What does diverse data mean to you (Useful, accurate info addressing change) 
  • What are the enabling factors of diverse data and what are the barriers? (for example enabling, championing roles and behaviours)
  • What works well in this area and what needs attention? (such as, what needs more work)
  • We are great at collecting the data, but we need to start doing something with it to close the loop.  Slides from Ricky Somal, Southern Health NHS Trust
