Awards and prizes

Nominated for York University Pioneering Inclusivity Award

2023

“Anna Hammond has been a trailblazer in implementing Microaggressions & Bystander Training at HYMS, addressing a concerning rise in reported bullying and harassment behaviours during students’ NHS placements. These incidents, involving both NHS staff and patients, often intersect with gender and race issues, impacting students’ willingness to participate in clinical settings crucial to their learning. The potential negative effects on student attainment necessitate ongoing assessment of the programme’s wider impact’ ‘Over two years, Anna exhibited academic leadership by conducting training sessions for various staff and student groups, collaborating with NHS partnership organisations, and developing relevant scenarios and video resources. Her inclusive approach has made this training a pioneering initiative, extending its influence beyond the university to the local health economy” (https://www.york.ac.uk/about/community/edi-exchange/awards/nominees-23/
