Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Our vision is to be diverse and inclusive, both in terms of the people who lead and run the HealthTech Research Centre, and the people who lead, deliver and are involved in our research.

This strategy sets out our vision, commitment and approach to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) for the surgical technologies community and the patients that stand to benefit from the medical technology we support. Improving diversity will ultimately increase the quality, translational relevance and world-changing impact of our research.

While we’re really proud of the strides we’re taking, this is by no means a complete process. We are now consulting on our plans and actions, and we are asking for suggestions on how to embed these principles and objectives, as well as ensuring they are as useful as possible for those it impacts.
