Our local Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) working group, formed of self-elected HIWM staff working across the organisation in a range of roles and capacities, help to steer our work to become a more inclusive and diverse organisation. Recent actions include:
- Hosting a virtual Privilege Walk – an interactive session delivered to the whole team, designed to open further discussions on equality, diversity and inclusion amongst staff.
- Designing supportive literature – providing an overview of the HIWM D&I aims, education on protect characteristics, and how the team can be more mindful of D&I
- Creating a video for the team – clearly articulating how the HIWM have built on the Health Innovation Network Network national pledges and developed local responses
- Developing #voiceyourcommitment social media campaign – offering team members the opportunity to personally contribute to addressing inequalities and inequity in health
We are actively engaged with the Health Innovation Network Network Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) group to share best practice and create a common framework nationwide.
