What we do
We are transforming healthcare by building an empowered and engaged community of talent ✨
At Generation Medics we believe that there are talented individuals in every community, but the circumstances people are born into still limit the opportunities they are able to access. We’re here to change this because we don’t think that’s right.
- We’re challenging perceptions of who “belongs” in healthcare and STEM industries
- We’re empowering women, BAME communities and underrepresented groups
- We’re challenging perceptions of what a business and a charity should look like
- We’re led by our beneficiaries and people with lived experience of the problems we’re solving
- We’re influencing policy, training and recruitment practices to make lasting change for future generations
