White Rose Equity in Leadership – Pilot project

The White Rose University Consortium is delighted to launch the new White Rose Equity in Leadership pilot project – Supporting Career Development of Black, Asian, and other Minority Ethnic Staff Aiming to Advance into Senior Leadership Positions.

The project was initiated by the three Vice-Chancellors of the White Rose Universities – Leeds, Sheffield, and York. Working as a consortium will create additional career development opportunities beyond what would be achieved by a single institution.

We are seeking Expressions of Interest from Black, Asian, and other Minority Ethnic staff members aiming to advance into senior academic and professional services leadership positions in the next two to three years.

The project aims to use a collaborative approach to enhance the career development of individuals to support their aspiration to progress into more senior roles. The pilot project approach is a combination of working with the cohort to identify opportunities for career development, and then providing support for these.

An important feature for this initiative is a co-creation approach. Specific activities will be built around the input from the cohort, and we are very open to trying out new ideas and novel approaches.

More information and an expression of interest form are now available. The deadline for submitting the form is Monday 5th December, 2022.

White Rose will take ownership of running the pilot project. Please contact White Rose in the first instance if you wish to find out more and are considering expressing an interest in this opportunity. Please contact Craig Walker at c.walker@whiterose.ac.uk
