Diversity at the heart of the College
We learn from difference, not homogeneity
It’s a fact that diverse organisations perform better and innovate more quickly. Knowledge multiplies among people who are able to learn from their differences. That’s why we’re putting diversity and inclusion at the heart of the College’s future. Embracing difference isn’t just the right thing to do. It can inspire all of us to grow. And it will ensure our profession remains at the forefront of patient care for generations to come.
We commit to reform in order to increase diversity, inclusivity and accountability in everything we do and every decision we make.
In March 2020 we launched our statement on challenging racism and challenging diversity, including a commitment to review diversity across our professional leadership. Recognising that representative leadership best serves our members and patients, we made a promise to identify any barriers to this and address them. To this end we invited the distinguished barrister and member of the House of Lords, Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, to chair an independent review of diversity in the College’s professional leadership.

In March 2021, we launched the findings of the review and in September will launch our action plan to bring the recommendations to fruition. Find out more.
