I recently ran a workshop for Sarah Salway’s team at Sheffield Hallam University on embedding ethnicity evidence in Joint Strategic Needs Assessments. This is part of a piece of work they are responsible for on Evidence and Ethnicity in Commissioning.

While preparing for the workshop it struck me that with any new initiative we tend to focus on the present and the future rather than considering how this relates to what we did in the past. At times of transition I think it is important to understand our past context so that we can change our behaviours, cultures and expectations to fit the new environment.

I have put together the ‘handy table’ below that tries to capture this – let me know if I should add more – or if you disagree with it!
