Equality, diversity and inclusion are often talked about and aspired to, but how far is the nursing workforce from reflecting them in practice, and what steps can be taken by all to achieve genuine, all encompassing improvements to prevent discrimination and promote a diverse and inclusive NHS?

From recruitment processes to leadership skills development, equality, inclusion and diversity can be championed by every nurse, at every level, to create an inclusive culture and an inclusive workplace.

This practical and inspiring CPD webinar examines what needs to be done to improve an organisation's inclusion strategy, remove unconscious bias, and create an inclusion policy that is reflected in real terms. It showcases pockets of best practice where equal opportunities are being promoted with real effect in the staff network, reducing inequality.

This webinar took place on Thursday 26 January 2023. 

This event was sponsored by NHS Health Education England.
