Black Country Healthcare Foundation Trust: Cultural Ambassador Programme

The Cultural Ambassador programme was an opportunity to make a difference and challenge any unconscious bias and discrimination that may occur for those black, Asian and minority ethnic employees entering or during formal HR processes.

The Cultural Ambassador’s project in partnership with the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) provided the trust the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to BAME staff. The partnerships between the RCN, trust HR, Staff Side and E&D were crucial in the successful delivery of this programme.
