Due to the overwhelming response to our applications process this year, we are delighted to announce that in addition to the 64 organisations chosen to be part of our 2020/21 diversity and inclusion Partners programme, we have selected a further 23 organisations who will join in 2021/22.
Paul Deemer, head of diversity and inclusion at NHS Employers said:
"The Partners programme and the associated Alumni programme continue to develop and grow a network of leaders and innovators across the system who champion and drive the diversity agenda. The health and social care organisations joining us on the programme will work together to integrate and embed diversity and inclusion both within their own organisations and across their wider regions and integrated care systems.
"Both Partners and Alumni will be helping us in a variety of ways throughout the year, including research, piloting and testing new policies and also working closely with our national partners such as Health Education England, NHS England and NHS Improvement, among others. We know through experience, that participating organisations will develop best practice, pioneer new thinking and develop new solutions to help the health and social care sector to provide a more inclusive and diverse service both for staff and for the communities they serve”.
