Stepping Up is a fully funded, two to three month positive action programme from the NHS Leadership Academy. It has been designed for individuals 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 healthcare sector.
The programme aims to create greater levels of sustainable inclusion within the NHS by addressing the social, organisational and psychological barriers restricting BAME colleagues from progressing within the NHS. It is split into two cohorts – one for bands 5 and 6 and another for people in band 7 roles and runs across four or five residential dates (depending on cohort). The programme has been designed specifically for these colleagues.
“I feel more confident and able to harness the power of cultural heritage to improve my abilities as a leader.” David Van de Velde, Nurse, Central and North West NHS Foundation Trust
