Get involved: Join our EDI committee as a lay representative

Posted 12 April 2022

Date: 12 Apr 2022

Type: FSRH Press Releases and Statements

We are currently looking to recruit a lay member to our EDI Committee to inform it’s work from the perspective of those outside of clinical work in the sexual and reproductive healthcare setting.

Equality, equity and inclusivity is a cross-cutting enabler of our FSRH 2020 – 2025 strategy and one of our core values. As part of this, we have created a new, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) committee to drive forward our EDI activity, working on behalf of our Board of Trustees.

EDI priorities

As part of this committee, you will help us to assess where impact is most needed, identify the problems or risks that need addressing, and ultimately support us to develop an EDI strategy and action plan. This plan will make recommendations to the Board of Trustees on priority work to focus on between 2022 and 2025 (the end of our current organisational strategy).

We are seeking a lay member to join the committee, with our first meeting scheduled for 23rd May. Meetings will take place four times a year and can be attended remotely.

This a fantastic opportunity to join a committee of great strategic importance to the work of the FSRH, and to make a positive impact to the SRH workforce.

• To bring experience from outside of the clinical SRH setting to benefit the FSRH.

• To contribute to the role and function of the EDI Committee, overseeing the work of the Faculty as it relates to the remit of the Committee and the delivery of the FSRH EDI strategy.
