WHAT IS THE TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME?
The Transformational Leadership Programme is designed to improve public health outcomes and reduce health inequality in Lambeth and Southwark, by focusing on breaking the link between race and poor health outcomes. In Lambeth and Southwark, people from Black communities experience significantly worse health outcomes than other groups*, an injustice that demands determined, energetic action.
This programme will offer two strands of leadership development: one for individuals, one for organisations
Individual strand: We will support a cohort of 20 high potential Black leaders with a connection to Lambeth and Southwark in their leadership development through online and facilitated training, coaching, and access to networks. Each participant will be placed on a board of one of the participating organisations, offering practical experience in strategic leadership.
Organisational strand: The programme will support 20 organisations in Lambeth and Southwark who share our ambition to reduce racial inequality are invited to join us on a journey towards transformational change. Each organisation will be supported to undertake a baseline DEI assessment and will be supported to develop and deliver a tailored action plan to strengthen equality in both internal systems and service delivery. Organisations will also benefit from a board appointment from the Individual Leader strand of the programme, to support strong commitment at a strategic level. Organisations are asked to make a £2000 contribution (please contact us if this is a significant barrier to participation).
Taking this double pronged approach, this programme aims to deliver better health outcomes for all Lambeth and Southwark residents, by doing two things:
- Supporting organisations to improve equity, diversity and inclusion within their organisation and across their services, through dedicated support and guidance for their board and senior leadership teams and
- Creating advancement opportunities for Black leaders who are willing to engage with their experiences of the impacts of inequalities to ensure decisions made at the most senior levels of the organisation, considers the needs of users in the diverse communities of Lambeth and Southwark.
This programme is delivered in partnership with Inclusive Boards, Do It Now Now, Impact on Urban Health and Guys & St Thomas Foundation.
