Radical Reformers ep.39: Selina Douglas
Updated: Nov 3, 2022
Selina Douglas, Executive Director, North East London NHS Foundation Trust
In this episode Andrew Laird speaks to Selina Douglas. Selina is an Exec Director at the Northeast London Foundation Trust (NELFT), a large community services provider operating in London, Essex and Kent.
Selina has a rich mixture of professional experience having worked in the third sector, within councils and in the NHS. This gives her two very important perspectives, one is about challenging traditional progression routes within the public sector i.e. gathering a range of experiences rather than just sticking in one silo and the second is an appreciation of the role other players such as councils and the third sector have in successfully supporting people to live healthy fulfilling lives.
Andrew and Selina also talk about the importance of representation in terms of ethnicity and gender but also in terms of organisational type.
I hope you enjoy it.
