Disproportionality and misconduct in the professions: understanding and responding to difference
Perceptions of disproportionality in misconduct proceedings have been researched in several professions. In response, employers, professional bodies and regulators have taken action in the interest of ensuring adherence to principles of equality, diversity and human rights. This conference brings together stakeholders from a range of services to discuss their common experiences, share best practice and consider future challenges.
Keynote speakers include: Sir Peter Fahy (Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable); Antony Townsend (Solicitors Regulation Authority Chief Executive) and Dr Umesh Prabhu (Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Foundation Trust Medical Director and British International Doctors’ Association Vice Chairman).
