Counselling, Psychotherapy and Coaching Author, Consultant in Equalities and Diversity, Counselling and Self-Awareness Trainer
Equalities and Diversity Consultancy
Since 2006 until my retirement at the end of January 2014, I have had a lead role in Equalities and Diversity at Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust, a large healthcare NHS Trust providing mental and community health and a range of specialist services within London and nearby counties, including prisons.
My experience included:
Examples of which can be found at: http://www.cnwl.nhs.uk/about-cnwl/vision-values/equality-and-diversity/documents/
How often do people say that they have no problem with equality and diversity, they treat everyone the same. They miss the point. That is not what it is about. It is about respecting the individual, their differences and their similarities to ourselves.
I don't say much but every now and then something occurs that I just have to comment on!
