Equality and Inclusion: Uncomfortable Conversations
AACE and the College of Paramedics hosted a Zoom call on Thursday 11 March 2021 – centred on uncomfortable conversations. Our aim was to support colleagues with ways to feel confident when holding uncomfortable conversations about bias, micro aggressions and inappropriate banter. We invited all ambulance service staff to attend this session on learning through discomfort – and why feeling uncomfortable isn’t a bad thing.
In a really engaging session we heard from speakers with expertise, knowledge and experience in this area and provided the opportunity for colleagues to reflect on what they heard, share their own thoughts and views, and take forward some valuable and practical insights.
It was a truly inspiring event – see for yourself in our recording below.
