Apply for the Stonewall Leadership Programme 2016
Wednesday, 29 June 2016
The highly regarded Stonewall Leadership Programme is aimed at LGBT professionals from any sector at a management level. It is designed to enable each delegate to transform their own leadership in a way that is highly personal to them in the specific context of their workplace.
Now in its 12th year, the CPD accredited, intensive two-day residential programme offers a selected group of professionals a powerful opportunity to:
- Reflect on how their identity as an LGBT person impacts on their role as a leader in the workplace
- Find out for themselves what it means to be a leader
- Explore how they can be a more effective organisational role model
- Network and forge on-going relationships with other lesbian, gay, bi and trans professionals from the private, public and third sectors
This year’s programme runs Wednesday 23 November – Friday 25 November 2016. The University will centrally fund up to two places on the Stonewall Leadership Programme. If accepted onto the programme, we request that the School / Service of the successful participant covers the cost of travel to and from the event.
This is a highly competitive programme, so if you would like to be considered as an applicant, please email a completed 'expression of interest' form to Frances Raimo by 5:00pm, Friday 15 July.
Consideration of the ‘expressions of interest’ will be completed by 5:00pm Friday 29 July, and you will be advised as soon as possible thereafter.
The two applicants who are successful at the ‘expression of interest’ stage will be given support in their application to Stonewall by Simon Chandler-Wilde.
To discuss applying or have any questions, please contact Simon Chandler-Wilde (Dean for Diversity & Inclusion) or Frances Raimo (Diversity & Inclusion Officer).
