Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Board Advisor

Qadeer Kiani has brought a breadth of experience to NHS ML – with a social housing background, he has run his own successful management consultancy for more than 15 years. For the past nine years he has been the chair of Arhag Housing Association, during which time he led a major programme of work bringing together education, employment, health and housing services to support migrants and refugees. In 2019, Qadeer was awarded an OBE for services to migrants and refugees.

Qadeer chairs the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Board Sub Group –providing advice and feedback on EDI. In addition, he works closely with our internal staff networks and Associate Director of Culture to ensure our approach and work is making a difference.

Creating the role of EDI Board Advisor was an important action for our organisational development plan to ensure NHS ML is an Attractive, Caring and Equitable organisation, where everyone achieves their potential and is supported to thrive. The EDI Board Advisor will provide support and challenge to NHS ML as it progresses its work to be a more inclusive organisation.
