Lunch and Learn - Sharing Approaches to Inclusion in Healthcare and Research

This Lunch and Learn session will cover:

• How do you recognise diversity in your work?

• What type of outcomes could being diverse in practice bring (if you don’t know why diversity matters, then how can you do it well or convincingly?)

• What issues could be stopping the adoption of diversity and equity approaches?

Sasha is a Genetic Counsellor practicing in the UK. She is passionate about inclusive participation and culturally appropriate care. Sasha has 10 years experience of working in the National Health Service and has worked for a short time in South Africa. She champions and advocates for more cultural diversity in the genetic counselling workforce and race equality in the wider healthcare to create better services for all.

Mavis is a health and social science researcher with a background in midwifery. She is interested in understanding and critiquing the societal impacts of genetics and genomics technologies and the role of diverse perspectives and practices in the field. Mavis researches genetics and genomics practices, research and engagement and thinks about how these can be tailored to communities, instead of creating further social and health inequalities.

Our Lunch and Learn sessions will offer sociable, collaborative alternative to traditional classroom based learning, The sessions are a great way to foster a culture of learning and knowledge, encouraging growth and strengthening ties across the region which will enable us to build a stronger work culture in the NHS.
