Black History Month takes place in October, we have pulled together a list of resources and activities that may inspire you to run a local campaign within your own organisation.
In the NHS, 6.1 per cent of staff identify as being from a black background. Black History Month has been recognised for many years with a month-long programme of inspirational events and workshops - honoring the achievements, culture, and rich history of black people.
This year, the restrictions placed by the impact of COVID-19 has meant many organisations will not be holding face-to-face events, but instead will be finding more innovative ways to mark Black History Month with virtual meet-ups and online events.
We have published a summary of some of the activities that NHS organisations are doing locally, along with some workforce statistics and a list of resources and organisations which may be of interest.
During October keep an eye on our website and on Twitter and join the conversation using hashtags #EducateCelebrate #BlackHistoryMonth as we join in the celebrations, share stories and resources.
