The second cohort of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Leadership Programme has now concluded and underlined the success of this initiative.
Existing and aspiring BAME leaders from across the local health and care system have been speaking about their experiences on the programme.
Utilising the NHS Leadership Academy’s Stepping Up programme, it is coordinated by North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust and forms part of the OD programme.
As well as supporting the participants to further develop their leadership skills, it has also helped them to enhance their skills to assist with career progression. A total of 55 people have now included the programme, with 40 more due to participate in the latest cohort in February.
