Lunch and Learn -So, You Want to be an Ally?

So, you want to be an ally?

Sarah Knowles - Joint Business Manager (North East, Yorkshire and The Humber)

We all want to make a positive difference regardless of our profession, role or pay-band. However, inclusion is a vast, complex and ever evolving subject, and it can be difficult to know where to start. In this session Sarah will explore what it means to be a good ally, how it all starts with self and the steps that anyone working in the NHS can take to make a difference. This session is interactive so come prepared to share, learn and listen.

Sarah is Senior Business Manager at the NHS Leadership Academy, North East and Yorkshire and has a passion for social justice and inclusion. As part of this she is currently working with the academy senior leadership team to develop an approach to allyship.

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.
