”The NHS is committed to making substantial progress in ensuring that the boards and leadership of the NHS organisations better reflect the diversity of the local communities they serve, and that the NHS provides supportive and non-discriminatory ladders of opportunity for all its staff including those from black and minority ethnic backgrounds” (Five year forward view, 2014)
We support the aims of DPIC and BLFI through the design and delivery of several leadership and development interventions. BLFI has three key strategic objectives:
- Raise the level of aspiration on inclusion
- Ensure that leadership is equipped to achieve and leave an ever increasing and sustainable legacy of inclusion
- Quicken the pace of change towards inclusion
Our current interventions underpinned by the above strategic objectives include:
- System Culture Change: Reciprocal Mentoring
- Regional Leadership: BAME Staff Network Development day
- Resourceful and Resilient Change Makers Programme
- BAME workshops (Radar community)
- Regional membership of the national group: Power of Staff Networks
The NHS continues to experience challenges in achieving its aspirations to increase the number of under-represented groups in senior roles. We invite local NHS organisations to participate in a Systems Leadership Reciprocal Mentoring programme to progress this agenda.
This two-day workshop in January 2019 is aimed at key system leaders who are responsible for making cultural change. See the flyer to download below for further information, or contact Amy.firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
