What do Inclusion and Diversity Ambassadors do?
Our Inclusion and Diversity (I&D) Ambassadors help us understand the impact our programmes and activities have on making NHS finance more inclusive. They also help to identify challenges and areas that need additional support, improvement and investment.
I&D Ambassadors come together in regional networks where they meet and share experiences. Together, they develop local action plans for their organisations and regions to implement.
Ambassadors work to link the ED&I action plan to the national finance development strategy. They also provide a vital link to finance teams, providing a valuable feedback to leaders about what’s happening ‘on the ground’. These insights influence One NHS Finance’s strategic direction and future plans.

“As a female finance professional, I was always interested to understand why, despite there being more females in finance departments overall, there were fewer who made it to the more senior positions. The Inclusion & Diversity Ambassador network is a great opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals, who all want to make a positive change for the future of our finance departments. There is so much research out there that demonstrates the benefits of having a diverse workforce at all levels within our teams and I am so excited that we now have a group giving dedicated time to really think about how we develop best practice across our region.”
