Anti-Racism Autumn 2023 Training Date Released

We are delighted to have received such fantastic support for our anti-racism training sessions across Sussex, working with you all as allies to address the role racism plays in healthcare and its impact on staff, patients and patient outcomes.

The feedback from attendees has outlined the difference our sessions have made, please see some of their quotes below:

"I believe the training will help me in future to identify and deal with any kind of situations like this that may occur. I'll have to see how well what I learned will transfer back to the job, but I'm confident the training provided me with a lot of insight and necessary tools."

"Really excellent training. I hope I can share the learning and bring meaningful change."

"Fantastic training. Without a doubt, the most helpful training of this kind that I have done. Hugely appreciate the knowledge and expertise of both presenters."

"Absolutely excellent training, which made clear the origins, the impact of racism and how it persists today. With helpful suggestions to begin to combat and challenge racism."
