CCQI Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Month - November 2022

Event Information

The College Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI) is excited to announce its first Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Month aimed at providing teams with ideas and resources to work towards more inclusive and equitable workplaces.

Earlier this year, CCQI produced and shared updated Core Quality Standards. These have included a number of standards relating to increasing equality in our mental health services.

This month gives us a chance to explore how services can embed these new standards, the potential benefits for our patients and staff and how we can create more diverse and inclusive services by embedding the Core Standards in our daily practices. The month will be filled with online events, newsletters, and resources around Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in mental health.

Registration to the month is free and you can gain access to all webinars and resources across the month by registering here. Please note that all webinars will also be recorded and available to watch at a later date for anyone not able to attend live.
