CoDH Anti-Racism work

The Council is committed to anti-racism and has established an Anti-Racism Advisory Group of healthcare academics from across the UK that is advising the organisation on integrating this agenda across its policy and leadership work.

Race Equity Month

In November 2021, we will be launching the Council’s first Race Equity Month. More information to follow.

Anti-Racism in Academia CoDHcast series

The Council is running a series of CoDHcasts on the theme of anti-racism in academia and health. The series involves speaking to academics and researchers from our membership, as well as interviewing some of the #150Leaders from the Student Leadership Programme.


Continuing on from our Anti-Racism in Academia CoDHcast series, we have recognised the need for a stronger emphasis on increasing diversity in academia. We will be running various events throughout the year with a particular focus on anti-racism.

Student engagement

In September 2020, the Student Leadership Programme established the Race Matters group, made up of current students and alumni from the #150Leaders network.
