To assist us in understanding how we are progressing to meet these aims and to identify areas for further focus we are seeking your support to collect the below information to further our ambition. Any information you provide will be used to produce and monitor equal opportunities aggregate statistics and this analysis will inform how the RSN is supported to develop individuals from under-represented demographics, for example through the expert voices work.
