Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Welcome. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) has been central to HSA in many ways, for many years.

We are at the beginning stages of undertaking a more strategic approach to EDI at HSA. This page will be updated regularly to provide a high-level overview of the ways EDI is being addressed at HSA. Please also check the Events calendar for ongoing learning opportunities for members. In the Resources section you will find some further learning materials on various EDI topics.
