The Provider Podcast - Digital Boards: Lessons from diverse leadership

Episode three

In this episode of our Digital Boards season, Saffron Cordery speaks with Shera Chok, The Shuri Network co-founder and chair, NHS Digital deputy chief medical officer and NHS England and NHS Improvement national clinical advisor, Patricia Miller OBE, Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust chief executive and board director for the NHS Race and Health Observatory, and Andy Callow group chief digital information officer at Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust  and Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust.

They discuss why representation matters in digital and across wider services, what practical steps boards should be taking to improve diversity, the importance of inclusivity in the recruitment process, how the diversity of the workforce and wider communities is not represented adequately in its leadership and how this can negatively impact digital products and services which are shaped through a biased 'single lens'.
