Are you a black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) leader or an aspiring leader? Do you want to progress your skills and go further?
Stepping Up is a fully funded, two-to-three-month positive action programme from the NHS Leadership Academy. It has been designed for individuals working in bands 5 to 7 who have an interest in developing their leadership abilities and want to be involved in creating a transformational change in equality and diversity across the health and care sector.
It aims to create greater levels of sustainable inclusion within the NHS by addressing the social, organisational and psychological barriers restricting BAME colleagues from progressing.
The programme is designed to bridge the gap between where applicants are and where they need to be, to progress into more senior roles. Successful applicants will be empowered to drive forward the inclusion agenda and develop their skills and abilities in order to grow and progress.
If you’re a participant, The Stepping Up programme will help you:
- Prepare and develop for more senior leadership roles within the NHS
- Challenge the diverse environment you work in to make transformational change
- Develop the knowledge, experience and skills to help your organisation create an inclusive culture and also help you to influence change across wider healthcare
- Empower you to become a role model to help inspire the development and progression of others
