Airedale’s Race Equality Network has been established to help support the organisation’s strategic priorities for inclusion.

We need to create an environment where colleagues from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds feel valued and included thus enabling them with confidence to become more productive and challenge the differences they experience in comparison to non-BAME colleagues.

Inclusion is key in creating a productive, happy workforce that feels valued. In achieving this, in line with the Trust’s People Strategy, we can deliver a safer and higher quality of care for our patients.

Airedale’s Race Equality Network provides a safe and confidential space to raise concerns, provide an open and transparent forum and offer mutual support.

Race Equality Network Safe Space

The aim of Race Equality Network Safe Space is to encourage open and honest discussion by providing a safe and confidential space for staff from all ethnic minorities to raise concerns, provide an open and transparent forum and provide mutual support for staff.
Come along to these drop-in sessions and our network member(s) will be there to listen and sign-post where appropriate.
The sessions will run on the second Wednesday of every month for an hour from 1pm. They will take place in the Education Centre, Conference Call Room (Room on left before the main lecture theatre).
