The organisations and people in the health and social care system in Bradford District and Craven are committed to promoting and upholding the values of equality, diversity and inclusion.
We want our district to be a fairer and more equitable place where everyone can achieve their potential and have a good quality of life regardless of who they are.
We consider our workforce to be at the heart of acting as one to us achieving this ambition. If we act as one we know we can create fantastic places and organisations for people to work in and deliver great health and care for our district. As such workforce is one of the key priorities for our Bradford District Equality Group, chaired by Udy Achibong (Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion).
We want to ensure that our employees are supported to reach their full potential, are not subject to any unfair disadvantages regardless of their background and are representative of the communities that they serve. We are currently delivering and planning for a broad range of programmes to help us achieve this ambition, some of which are listed below.
