As part of Pride season, we are running a series of short podcasts providing an insight into the lives and experiences of LGBT+ leaders. These exceptional individuals come from a diverse range of backgrounds and will be sharing with listeners their experiences of LGBT+ inclusion in their respective industries, and also some ideas on what more allies can do to promote LGBT+ equality.
In this episode, the firm's CSR and Diversity Director Chris Edwards speaks with Consultant Dermatologist Dr Rakesh Anand. This informative conversation focusses on LGBT+ and BAME inclusion in medicine and the NHS, and also the importance of diverse role models.
Dr Rakesh Anand is a consultant dermatologist and dermatological surgeon. As a senior clinician, and equality and diversity advocate, he encourages people from all backgrounds into roles within the healthcare. His hopes is it will enrich medicine with a broader array of insights and experiences and, ultimately, improve the care of all patients.
