Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) for Genomic Professionals

Guy’s and St Thomas’ EDI for Genomic Professionals Online Course


Although there have been initiatives to address the equitable practice of genetic services disparities still exist. Differences in access to genetic services, recruitment of genetic professions and the experience of communities with medicine and genetics; all contribute to some of the disproportion in outcomes seen for different minoritised, protected and cultural groups in the UK.

This course is designed to highlight the fundamental approaches and limitations for professionals keen to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion in their genomic practice. Through the use of action learning sets participants will learn the basics of culturally competent service provision and the principles needed to develop outcome focussed change in their relevant professional groups. This course aims to support the development of practical and collaborative initiatives that work towards equity in genomic services and healthcare.
