Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Council

Date: 21 August 2020

The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Council met for the second time on Thursday 20th August. The EDI Council which is Chaired by Betsy Basis, brings together Executive Team members Katherine Robinson, David Rose, Katie Robinson and our new Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Rosna Mortuza, with Network Chairs and Staffside colleagues. The aim of the EDI Council is to shape strategy and hold the organisation to account on delivering our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion agenda. A key part of the meeting focussed on discussions around our recruitment framework and ways to improve it going forward. 

Rosna says, “Four weeks in to my new role as Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, the EDI Council provided a great opportunity to listen and share initial thoughts on shaping a Diversity and Inclusion multi-year Programme for NHSBT. A considerable amount of good work has already been done and I’m looking forward to consolidating and co-ordinating delivery that makes a difference on the ground, with clear metrics to demonstrate progress. I’m also excited to get out and meet more people with engagement events being planned for the Autumn.” 

Look out for further updates from the EDI Council on Link, People First and Yammer together with details of how you can get involved in future meetings.
