Language Concerns: FNF CEO response

“Florence Nightingale Foundation takes accusations of racism very seriously and is committed to understanding the impact of language used. My priority is to apologise for the unintended offence caused by the webinar name ‘Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling’.  This name was chosen by the webinar panellists, East and South Asian nurses, and midwives. The webinar will go ahead tomorrow as planned to celebrate and understand the culture, contributions and lived experiences of this expert and highly accomplished group of nurses and midwives.”

Professor Greta Westwood, Florence Nightingale Foundation CEO
