Regional NHS BAME Women's Summit

We are pleased to announce further details of this summit taking place 28 June in central Leeds.

We welcome transgender and non-binary people working in the NHS who are BAME to join us at this event also.

  • Raise the level of ambition on inclusion – with a focus on BAME women leaders and leadership systems across NHS funded services.
  • Quicken the pace of change towards improving talent and inclusion for BAME women.
  • Ensure that Yorkshire and the Humber are equipped to achieve and leave an ever increasing and sustainable legacy of talent and inclusion.
  • Enable BAME women greater access to high quality development in order to grow their skills, knowledge base and capabilities.
  • Create a safe space for BAME women to network, discuss learn and share with other BAME women.

Action Learning Set Facilitator Programme

Applications for the NHS Leadership Academy's Action Learning Set Facilitator programme (ALS) are now open!

This fully-funded programme develops high-level facilitation skills for supporting action learning within the NHS. We want to develop a faculty of ALS facilitators that is drawn from across the whole landscape of health and care. Our aim is to develop a team of facilitators from the NHS – to grow skills within, as opposed to purchase them on a consultancy basis.
