2 CPD training/seminar for Black Radiographers – Employee Empowerment

Thursday 23 November

If you or someone you know is facing racial discrimination, victimization, or harassment at your workplace, it is imperative to take prompt action to protect your rights and well-being. Discrimination can manifest in various forms, including direct discrimination, indirect discrimination, harassment, and victimization.

 

We recognize the sensitivity of these matters and are dedicated to offering a solution. Your confidentiality is our priority, ensuring a safe space for you to discuss your concerns. Don’t allow discrimination to go unaddressed. Take the first step toward a workplace environment that respects and values diversity. Your well-being matters and we are here to help guide you through this process.

Solution: Attend the Training/Seminar

Join our training/seminar to explore how you can effectively address and navigate racial discrimination at work. This session aims to provide a structured and secure, both physically and mentally, space to deal with discrimination with an employer—without the fear of job loss or victimization.

The Equality Act of 2010 legally protects individuals from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society. Our online session is delivered in a humane manner, offering both informal and formal approaches to dealing with discrimination in the workplace. The topics covered include:

Informal Approach:

  • Start with the end in mind – What do you want to achieve?
  • Identify the type of discrimination
  • Gather information
  • Seek advice and support
  • Make yourself valuable
  • Initiate informal contact

Formal Approach:

Our aim is to empower you with the knowledge and skills needed to address and overcome racial discrimination at work effectively. We believe in fostering a workplace environment that is inclusive, diverse, and free from discrimination.

Barriers to Career Progression

Problem:

Barriers to Career Progression: Addressing Underlying Challenges

Challenges Overview:

The barriers to career progression are often deeply interconnected, encompassing issues such as a deficient workplace culture, individual and organizational biases, stereotypes, limited access to opportunities, and heightened instances of bullying and harassment.

Monitoring Progress: The Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) and Medical Workforce Race Equality Standard (MWRES), serve as vital benchmarks for assessing progress within NHS trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups in England. Despite this, there exists limited evidence regarding the impact of the NHS England WRES in enhancing the career progression of ethnic minority doctors into senior roles (Source: BMA).

Striving for Equality:

Every individual should have an equal opportunity to fulfil their potential at work, regardless of their background, identity, or circumstances. Regrettably, the current reality falls short of this ideal. Black and ethnically diverse individuals in the UK encounter heightened challenges both in entering and advancing within the workplace when compared to their white counterparts.

Statistics Snapshot:

While constituting one in eight of the working-age population, individuals from Black and ethnically diverse backgrounds occupy only one in sixteen of top management positions. (Source Addressing the barriers to BAME employee career progression to the top report by CIPD 2017).

Confidential and Original Perspective:

In our confidential sessions, we delve into the intricacies of these challenges, recognizing the need for a nuanced understanding. By addressing underlying issues and fostering a supportive environment, our aim is to break down these barriers and facilitate equitable career progression. Join us in our training/seminar to explore strategies for overcoming these challenges and advancing your career, irrespective of your background.
