Diversity and Inclusion
A more diverse BOA better serves our patients and best supports our colleagues. Trauma and Orthopaedics should be an inclusive surgical profession that inspires, attracts and retains the best talent from a wide variety of backgrounds. We believe that achieving this vision will promote better quality patient care.
Women of East Anglia T&O Surgeons (WEATS) share their experiences of working as a female orthopaedic surgeon. Hear their advice on a career in T&O surgery and what it means to them.
As part of BOA & BOTA’s culture and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strategy, we are delighted to launch a new Culture & Diversity (C&D) Champions’ programme.
As part of our Diversity and Inclusion strategy we are committed to stimulate cultural change and improve diversity and inclusion across Trauma and Orthopaedics. As part of this work we want to challenge the status quo by joining up with industry on making orthopaedic tools more inclusive.
The BOA has published it Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan. Both documents are available to read and download.
Held on 24th June 2021, this lecture and discussion co-hosted by the BOA and the BHS addressed issues faced by black, Asian and minority ethnic staff and patients in the NHS.

In celebration of Pride Month in 2021 we were delighted to join up with a number of our members to run a social media campaign. They all gave some valuable insight into how they view their career progression as someone from the LGBTQ+ community and gave some really outstanding advice to others.
