SEL ICB has a clearly defined set of equality objectives for 2020 to 2024 to drive forward its commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
More information can be found on our objectives and our progress with them in our Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) 2022/23 report.
Our equality objectives are monitored robustly, and progress tracked and reported regularly to our Equalities Sub-Committee
We are working to develop a culture of EDI by embedding Equality Impact Assessment across all SEL areas, including policy development and service planning.
We are cultivating an organisation that is inclusive, free from discrimination with all able to fulfil their potential, where staff are engaged, listened to and feel supported, and where leaders and managers foster a workforce culture which values diversity.
We are ensuring that equality is everyone’s business with everyone expected to take an active part, supported by the work of specialist leaders, champions and Board members and senior leaders demonstrating commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion in the development of SEL ICB vision, values, strategies and culture. This will be supported by building assurance and accountability for progress.
Building strong relationships with our diverse communities, better understanding the needs and experiences of the population across SEL and to adjust our approaches accordingly. Improving the fair access and experience of protected groups across healthcare services.
