Leadership development offered to BAME staff at Mid Yorkshire NHS Foundation Trust

5 Mar 2020

A new programme to support BAME staff to feel valued, develop networks and provide opportunities for leadership and promotion is being delivered to nurses working at bands 5 and 6 throughout the Mid Yorkshire NHS Foundation Trust.

This is a bespoke course based on the RCN's successful 'Developing Leadership' Programme (DLP). The DLP will help the 20 participants be effective role models and bring about positive changes whilst promoting a team approach that is inclusive, vibrant and supported by continuous learning.

The programme has been put together following communications between Dame Donna Kinnair, Yinglen Butt, Gill Coverdale and Wendy Irwin from the RCN with David Melia and colleagues at Mid Yorkshire NHS Foundation Trust.

This will form part of wider piece of work to offer a sustainable, broader and deeper cultural change programme that embeds inclusion and inclusive leadership at every level of the organisation. This work will require a long-term commitment in order to yield dividends on changing staff experience and expectations.
The intended outcomes of the programme are
Understand the characteristics of effective leadership & how this underpins your role
Demonstrate how to positively influence those around you
Identify and challenge barriers which impact on the safe delivery of care
Develop strategies for developing resilience
Practice as an effective role model and act as a positive change agent
Identify areas of practice which require further development.
