#BreakTheBias So The Next Generation Won’t Have To

Louise Parkes, Chief Executive Officer, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity

 IWD 2022

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Children's Charity is committed to transforming the lives of seriously ill children everywhere.

And just as there is no place for bias in the treatment and care of the children and families who access support through Great Ormond Street Hospital, there is no place for it within GOSH Charity.

We are committed to doing more than just adhering to our legislative obligations when it comes to addressing gender inequality.

We believe that everyone, regardless of gender, has the right to live and flourish without fear or prejudice, and to feel respected and valued.

We launched our new EDI strategy in 2021 and have made great strides since then – equality and inclusivity have become a cornerstone of our culture, strategy, policies and practices, and the way we work with our partners, supporters, and the hospital, patients, and families we support.

And we still have a long way to go.

We will continue to strive to create a fair and equal workplace and world. Our focus is on ensuring that everyone we work with (and for) feels like they are represented and belong.

We will look for ways to learn about and celebrate our differences, to respect individual and collective voices, and to have the courage to step out of our comfort zones and challenge behaviours that do not reflect our beliefs.

We will work together to #BreakTheBias so the next generation won’t have to.
