Creating an inclusive workplace: MiP's guide to equality and diversity

By MiP

Equality Guide cover

At today's session of the MiP Summit, we are launching our guide to managing equality and diversity: Creating an Inclusive Workplace

The guide is a short and punchy introduction to how you – as a manager, MiP member or rep – can play your part in creating a truly inclusive NHS workplace. It includes:

  • an introduction to the key concepts and links to relevant research and resources from organisations like the CIPD. 
  • an outline the issues for the key population groups facing discrimination and disadvantage including women, Black and minority ethnic people, disabled people, and LGBT+ people
  • references to relevant initiatives across the four nations of the UK 
  • practical advice about what MiP members – as individuals, managers, and representatives – can do to promote equality and foster inclusion

We hope that you will use this guide to have both structured and informal discussions in your workplace about making the NHS a inclusive place to work. If you are interested in getting involved in MiP's work to promote equality and in your workplace, please contact your national officer.

This is the second of three guides for MiP members as managers, representatives, and individuals. Our guide to organisational culture was published in April, and a guide to managing organisational change will be published at the MiP Summit on 11 November.
