Inclusive Communication: Disability and Language: EDI Skill Development Sessions

Event placeholder

The Development, Change and Transition team are pleased to announce Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Skill Development Sessions. Following the success of these sessions in the Delivery and Operations directorates, these sessions are now available to all staff in NHS England. These sessions will increase our confidence in identifying non-inclusive practices and taking steps to create a more inclusive NHS England, and also help us foster good relations between our colleagues.

Inclusive communication (Disability and Language)

An introduction to the medical and social models of disability. Review of the words we use to talk about disability and how we can use more empowering language when talking about disability and disabled people.

Feedback from Previous Participants

  • “Powerful, relatable, personal stories that illustrated microaggressions are even more widespread than I had thought”
  • “I liked the phrase in one video in that it is OK to not understand, but take time to find out.”
  • “I learnt a lot about how diverse the LGBTQ+ community is and I found this really reassuring in terms of feeling equipped to think about and talk about this topic.”

Questions and Reasonable Adjustments

These sessions will run online on Microsoft Teams. Please e-mail [email protected] if you have any questions or to tell us how we can support you in participating in the sessions.
