We work collaboratively  in addressing the under-representation of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups in businesses and workforce across the Yorkshire and Humber region. 

Why Diversity and Inclusion are Important

Organisations with a diverse workforce are able to promote an organisational culture which is inclusive, agile and progressive.

Organisations with a diverse and inclusive culture achieve a competitive edge in a fast changing market.

Diversity encourages innovation by virtue of a wider pool of talented people offering diverse knowledge, skills, ideas and experiences.

Diversity enables organisations to effectively meet the needs of their markets and to develop new market groups.

Diversity encourages organisations to respond more effectively to their clients and draw in a broader customer base.

Diversity promotes equality and is reflective of the markets they provide services to.

A forward-thinking employer like the NHS Trust is committed in leading the way towards creating a more diverse workforce, which is why we are inspired with our partnership and the training scheme offered by PATH Yorkshire. With years of diversity expertise across the region and a pro ven track record in the field of positive action, PATH Yorkshire has been able to assist the NHS Trust to address the under representation of BAME people leading to a direct impact on the needs of our customers.

The help and support of PATH Yorkshire has been and continues to be an invaluable aid in our pursuit of a workforce that truly represents our local population.

The Youth Justice Service is committed to creating a workforce that reflects the children and families that we work with. For a number of years, we have worked with PATH Yorkshire to identify suitable candidates to undertake work placements with this Service.

PATH Yorkshire has always been fully supportive of their trainees during their placement and through monthly meetings and ongoing communication have supported both the trainees and ourselves to achieve positive outcomes. Over the years a number of PATH trainees have managed to secure permanent positions with our Service which has helped us become a more inclusive and diverse service.

Thank you, PATH Yorkshire.

Denis Lewis, Operations manager, Leeds Youth Justice Service
