Lunch and Learn Session – Identity, history and how it relates to belonging within the NHS

Virtual via MS Teams.

Midlands Leadership and Lifelong Learning is committed to raising awareness.   Over the forthcoming year we will be working with many different partners to bring you different and engaging topics.   All under the EDI remit we hope you will learn something new, challenge your thinking and create greater awareness and understanding.

Working with the Disability and Wellbeing Network (DAWN), this is a first in a series of lunch and learn events entitled Identity, history and how it relates to belonging within the NHS.

This session will focus on personal history and its impact on your perception of your own identity and how learning about our colleagues can influence their sense of belonging in a team. During the session we will hear from Zarah Mowhabuth about her research into her own personal history, what she uncovered and what that has allowed her to understand within her career in the NHS. We will also hear from Rosie Redstone about her experience with dyslexia and similarly how things she has learnt and discovered has impacted on her work in the NHS.

This is an interactive session given by:

Zarah Mowhabuth is a Programme Officer at NHS Horizons. She recently completed her Master’s degree at the University of Warwick in History (Global and Comparative). Determined to understand more about her own background, Zarah focused her work on identity politics and challenging the marginalisation of the black community within her own Mauritian heritage. She is now drawing the bridges between her academic background and job role with the intent to address similar issues of healthcare inequalities within the NHS.
