Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership (NHCP) is pleased to announce that Cherron Inko-Tariah MBE, founder of the National Staff Networks Day in the UK and author of The Incredible Power of Staff Networks, will host a staff network workshop during National Inclusion Week 2021.

Cherron Inko-Tarriah MBE

Held via MS Teams, the workshop will take place on Monday 27 September from 1pm to 4pm and is open to all staff across our health and care organisations (whether they already belong to a staff network or not). The event will focus on sharing good practice and identifying areas of collaboration, as well as gaps or areas of improvement for which NHCP can offer additional support.

All staff are encouraged to attend the workshop (including Staff Network Board Sponsors), which is set to cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • Equality, diversity and inclusion goals
  • Importance of staff networks
  • Benefits of staff networks
  • Roles of allies and sponsors

The workshop’s prominent place within the National Inclusion Week schedule reflects NHCP’s recognition that our staff are our greatest resource across the local health and social care system. For that reason, it is crucial that they have a voice and the confidence to use it. The organisation aspires to being open and inclusive, with a clear focus on improving equality, diversity and inclusion. Developing staff networks is strongly regarded as a means of achieving this across Northamptonshire’s Integrated Care System (ICS).

It is a regional priority for NHCP to support the development and sustainability of staff networks, harbouring a level of influence that positively impacts organisations through social movements of change and innovation.
