We are committed to promoting a fair and inclusive culture, both in in our workplace and in our work overseeing the 10 health and care regulators and the Accredited Registers. As an organisation, we have been reflecting on the issues raised by the recent resurgence of the Black Lives Matters movement. The Authority states clearly and definitively that Black Lives Matter and we support this movement and stand with those who challenge discrimination and racism in all its forms.
As noted in our statement issued on 17 June 2020, we have set up a project to review all aspects of our work, including our internal policies and processes, as well as our interactions with external organisations to ensure that we are doing all we can to promote a culture of fairness and inclusion.
Among a number of steps, we are looking for a consultant to advise us - you can find out more about this here, including how to apply if you are interested. The deadline for expressions of interest is 17:00 on 23 October 2020.
We will update this page as our project progresses, but we would welcome any ideas and suggestions from other organisations who may have carried out similar projects. You can get in touch with us by emailing email@example.com
