A new report highlighting the compelling business case for increased diversity in innovation in the NHS is to be launched by the AHSN Network at Health and Care Innovation Expo 2019 in Manchester today, Wednesday 4 September 2019.
The report ‘Diversity and innovation – a celebration of BAME innovators and our pledges to do more’ shares the stories of innovators from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and sets out pledges by the AHSN Network to further support the diversity and innovation agenda.
Richard Stubbs, Chief Executive Officer at Yorkshire & Humber AHSN, said: “The AHSN Network recognises that we have a leadership role to play in championing and developing diversity within our NHS innovation pipeline.
“This is why we are making some key pledges, as a national network, that demonstrate our commitment to this agenda. We will use these pledges to hold ourselves to account for the way that we identify and nurture innovation and the innovators.
