Turning The Tide Oversight Group

Equity in Career Development, Opportunity and Well-Being

The Turning The Tide report sets out the experiences of BAME maternity staff and women during the pandemic and makes seven recomendations. One is to achieve equity in career development, career opportunities, well-being for non-white staff and to address current barriers.

Development of clinical fellow opportunities, an anti-racism framework and the mentorship programme for BME maternity staff are pioneering initiatives are strengthening a positive culture of inclusive leadership across maternity services and arm’s length bodies. They are also contributing to heightened satisfaction and career progression of BME maternity staff. The judges were impressed and felt the undeniable passion from the winners. Their enthusiasm to find out what they could do next with future initiatives shone through. Judges really liked the ideas presented and were excited to see what was next from this group.
