Diversifying Leadership

Advance HE's Diversifying Leadership programme is designed to support early-career academics and professional services staff from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds who are about to take their first steps into a leadership role.

What is the Advance HE Diversifying Leadership programme?

There is a clear under-representation of from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds (BAME) leaders in HE institutions in the UK at all levels but particularly at senior levels. There is also documented evidence of the poor experiences of many BAME academic staff in UK HE including experiences related to leadership roles.

The Diversifying Leadership programme is designed to support early-career academics and professional services staff from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds who are about to take their first steps into a leadership role. It explores themes of power and influence, demystifying leadership, cultural identity and cultural capital, increasing your visibility and authentic leadership and features leadership stories from high-profile HE leaders.

Who is Diversifying Leadership for?

The Diversifying Leadership programme is designed to support early career academics, professional services staff, Lecturers and Senior Lecturers from BAME backgrounds.
