Start to explore diversity in greater details and not merely an institutional exercise

The NHS needs to pay closer attention, truly understand the potential, and give more importance to diversity and not merely be a poster displayed on hospital hallways. NHS institutions and organizations need to have better diversity metrics to reveal the true extent of how diverse institutions are (percentage of population X, percentage of population X in middle management position and senior management, etc.). This will help identify hidden gaps in management diversity and will give way to further exploration of factors and possible support needed.

The National Football League in USA adopted the Rooney Rule which requires NFL teams with a head coaching vacancy to interview at least one or more candidates.

Perhaps the NHS can adopt a similar strategy...
