Diversity and equality

Whatever your job, and wherever you work, valuing diversity will have an impact on you

Whatever your job, and wherever you work, valuing diversity will have an impact on you. These pages support RCN members at work and keep you up to date with events and news in this field. See our online advice about discrimination.

Is that discrimination?

RCN members from a diverse range of backgrounds have fed back to us just how hard we need to continue to work to challenge discrimination on all fronts. Our three-year project, Is that discrimination?, aims raise awareness of workplace discrimination, build the capacity of accredited representatives and work constructively with key employers to change workplace culture.  Find out more about the project and how to get involved.

Peer support @ the RCN

The peer support network is new and builds on the success of groups like the Work Injured Nurses Group and the Disabled Nurses Network. It is a membership group for any member affected by physical or psychological injury, ill health or disability - whether work-related or not. The group exists to assist members in making connections with peers to give and receive support. For more information visit Membership Support Services.

See our online advice about discrimination.
