The People Directorate at NHS England and NHS Improvement are pleased to invite you to ‘Race Ahead – NHS Big Conversation on Race’ during October.

Race Ahead will be a series of conversations and panel discussions on Wednesday 6 and Tuesdays, 12, 19 and 26 October, focused on the specific actions we can all take to improve the outcomes and experiences of our staff.

October is Black History Month in the UK, and as the NHS is the largest employer of people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds in the country and across Europe, the objective of Race Ahead will be to tackle the workplace discrimination that some of our staff continue to face.

Dates to remember:

  • Wednesday 6 October - Zero tolerance for racism: supporting a diverse workforce to deliver for patients
  • Tuesday 12 October - Leadership that makes a difference: positively transforming the culture of the NHS through leadership
  • Tuesday 19 October – Improving health and wellbeing for  all staff by reflecting on their lived experience
  • Tuesday 26 October - Strategic approaches to achieving racial equality
