Manage health and care teams with powerful inclusive leadership strategies
The importance of inclusive leadership is increasingly understood and sought after across almost every industry. This includes the health and care sector, and managers and supervisors need to develop these leadership skills if they want to stay relevant in the workplace. This six-week course from the NHS Leadership Academy will help you to do just that.
Get familiar with EDI basics
On this course, you’ll get an in-depth look at the core concepts relating to equality, diversity and inclusivity (EDI) policies. With this foundation, you’ll be able to examine and understand the impact that racism, privilege, intersectionality, and allyship have on levels of prejudice and acceptance at work.
Learn to put your leadership skills into action
After gaining a sound knowledge of EDI basics, you’ll move on to putting that theory into practice. As you move through the course, you’ll get to reflect on how your work experiences have shaped your own attitudes, identify staff and groups who need support, and design policies that allow you to lead with inclusion and allyship.
