Executive Programme for BAME Leaders

leadership Programme


At Inclusive Boards we work with a diverse range of clients and candidates beyond protected characteristics, including regional diversity and socio-economic background, however when we look at the board and senior leadership team composition across a range of sectors it is evident that there is an imbalance.

6.6% of trustees at the top 500 charities by income are from BAME backgrounds and 62% of charities have all white boards. 70.6% of senior exec teams in UK Tech have no BAME members, and 74% of UK Engineering companies have no BAME representation at the most senior level. As of 2019, almost half of the 240 NHS Trusts in England do not have a single board member from a black and minority ethnic background.

Using a blended learning approach of both online modules and facilitated training days the Inclusive Boards BAME Executive Leadership Programme will bring together BAME Managers, Heads of and Deputy Heads, as well as other senior staff, to share their leadership experiences in a learning environment that has direct relevance and personal impact.
