Very informative/ Enlightening Podcast

Thank you for discussing such a fantastic and well discussed topic.
I found the podcast very enlightening and informative. All speakers well very well informed and experienced in their designated areas.
I intend to encourage and direct colleagues to take up using this platform as we all have different learning styles and podcasts definitely are best suited for some learners..
Thank you once more, you have enlightened my knowledge on race inequality and researches currently been carried out to counteract this within the NHS..
Can I ask how one can get involve on a national platform level please.
