As part of the national work on the workforce disability equality programme, NHS Employers diversity and inclusion team and NHS England held a series of webinars to help NHS organisations with the implementation of  the NHS Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES).

This webinar is aimed at senior leaders and board members and highlights the role they can play in advancing workforce disability by:

  • improving their understanding of the collective role of the board
  • providing clarity on their governance role and the NHS Workforce Disability Equality Standard
  • sharing activities and approaches that can be adopted to demonstrate board effectiveness in overseeing the WDES implementation
  • highlighting the personal contribution they can make as a leader/board member.
