October eBriefing – Blog by HDN Chair, Jon Prashar

Posted by:

Really pleased to see that the Conference went well in October, thanks to the CIH for their support it was really well attended.

Looking forward to the Unconscious Bias sessions this issue really does appear to be getting some legs.

HDN has had its AGM in October and this all went smoothly, I’m delighted to see that HDN is growing from strength in strength in these challenging times, thanks for your support.

Arshia Bhatti is now our Vice Chair so you may be hearing more from her in the near future.

The CIH are still running their Presidential Commission on diversity so if I can encourage anyone to make an individual response that would be great I know the deadline’s coming up fast. But even if this slides in to November please make a response if you can.

I’m pleased to see that HDN has got new expertise around safeguarding; this really is an important issue to deal with.

We’re also trying to get in a bit earlier with those organisations that are part of the Sunday Times Best Companies and offer them our support through our hard working Chief Executive.

The Edge Forward mentoring seems to be growing from strength to strength and I’m really pleased with the support for the Board Mentoring programme.

I’m sure that the elections will be creating us some challenges in the near future and I look forward to working in this exciting and challenging time over the coming 8 months.

Thanks again for your support, look forward to speaking soon, many thanks and take care.
