EDI Committee

Further Information

I am Conor Maguire, a Consultant Geriatrician in Edinburgh, and the Vice President (International) at RCPE. I have had a keen interest in promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in the healthcare workforce through my entire career having witnessed, and experienced, discriminatory behaviour towards those with both visible and hidden characteristics.

I have been a member of the RCPE EDI committee since its inception, and am a member of the NHS Lothian LGBTQ+ staff network.

When I was Director of Education at RCPE, I introduced a gender quota for all educational meetings, ensuring that organising committees must aim towards gender equality among speakers and Chairs.

Everyone is entitled to a non-discriminatory approach in their workplace and in their lives, free from harassment, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender, age, race or disability.
