'The benefit of Diversifying Leadership is that it uses an “asset model” approach to combine four key elements: preparation through a series of challenging development activities; collaboration through action learning with peers; reflection by providing space between modules to think and act strategically; opportunity through access to a sponsor.'
Jannett Morgan, Programme Director,
A key priority for the Leadership Foundation in our continued work with UK HE funding bodies is to take a series of actions working with the sector to tackle the well documented under representation of BME leaders in UK higher education institutions; The Diversifying Leadership Programme is an important element of that work and we are delighted to confirm two further cohorts in 2017.
The programme is aimed at early career academics and professional services staff from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, up to and below senior lecturer level (or equivalent), who are about to take their first step into applying for a senior role – or aspire to a leadership role.
