Roles on external bodies
. “We become better educators and learners when we intentionally incorporate and value our unique differences in our teaching and learning. I collaborate with colleagues at nursing department to record inclusive teaching materials to embrace our diverse staff and student's population. We also plan to equip our clinical skills with inclusive resources. We aim to promote an open dialogue on issues related to inclusion and diversity without the fear of victimisation or intimidation. Our difference is our strength, and it is not possible without inclusion
