First, Clare and Craig catch up and discuss their reasons for choosing this fortnight’s episode, “Allyship”, particularly as we reach the end of Pride Month. Next, they talk about how humbled and thrilled they are that the podcast has been shortlisted as a finalist in the RCNi Royal College of Nursing Awards 2021 in the “Innovations in Your Speciality” category #RCNAwards.
Clare and Craig are then joined by Carole Anderson, Associate Director of Quality, Performance, Planning and Programmes at NHS Golden Jubilee. She is also Chair of the SWAN LGBT charity in Scotland, the Scottish Workplace Networking for LGBT people. Carole discusses her journey and why she believes allyship is so important and what this could look like. She also discusses how this links into the NHS Scotland Pride Badge initiative, which was nationally rolled out in Scotland on June 14th #NHSScotlandPride.
Following this interview, Clare and Craig reflect on how they try to be allies across the broad spectrum of intersectionality for all those with protected characteristics and what allyship means to them. They also discuss how being inclusive allies can improve the lived experiences of our colleagues and the healthcare for the communities we serve.
