From intention to impact – Supporting the development of inclusive recruitment and nurturing our talent –  Eliminating bias in the recruitment process


Last year systems submitted plans on how they will meet the 6 recruitment high impact actions for diverse appointments.  These submitted plans were reviewed by the regional workforce team and the outcomes of that review was shared through 2 regional engagement workshops with our system and organisational colleagues.  As result of the sessions key themes emerged.

 brap (www.brap.org.uk) is supporting the Midlands NHSEI Equality & Inclusion Team by facilitating four thematic sessions to enable professionals to explore their workforce recruitment practices.  The four themes are:

  • identifying talent,
  • advertising roles,
  • eliminating bias in the recruitment process, and
  • supporting retention and progression.

These sessions will be an opportunity to review strategies and interventions, further our understanding of the evidence base, and think through actions that can be more impactful.

We intend to have a final session in September (date to be confirmed nearer the time) to exchange knowledge and learning from the four sessions.

The sessions will therefore be run under Chatham House rules, and participants will be invited to be open and honest so that we can expand our collective expertise. Most importantly we want to be able to move into a space where more informed action can support a more inclusive workforce.

Further Dates and times of sessions:

Tuesday, 24 May 2022 from 1.30pm to 16.30 – Identifying talents 

Monday, 6 June 2022  from 9.30am to 12.30 –  Supporting retention and progression


Who’s this session for? 

  • System Workforce Leads
  • HR Colleagues (Recruitment Leads)
  • Talent Leads
  • EDI Leads

We would like for each of our systems within the Region to make an active participation and contribution. Therefore, we encourage attendance at all four sessions from our 11 ICS’s.
