In conversation with… Matt Hammonds and Sharon Rhodes on the WDES data and our commitment and drive to ensure disability equality is fully supported

Virtual via MS Teams.

As Disability History Month comes to an end join us in this one hour session on how the Workforce Disability Equality Standard underpins our commitment and drive to ensure disability equality is fully supported as a priority for our organisation and across our business areas.

The implementation of Workforce Disability Equality Standard is captured in our People Promise under ‘We are compassionate and inclusive’, which supports our goal ‘We are open and inclusive’.

The organisation subscribes to the social model of disability. This means we have a collective commitment to removing barriers and providing appropriate support when the need becomes apparent.​​​​​​​

Developed in partnership with the DaWN co-chairs and network, the Workforce Disability Equality Standard action plan identifies specific activity for implementation during 2021-22 to ensure disability equality is delivered.

Matt Hammonds, Head of People Strategy and Sharon Rhodes, Strategic Head of HR and OD will talk through our progress to date in turning this plan into a reality for our organisation.

Anyone within the NHS with an interest in data and equality and diversity and inclusion.
