Key Messages Document 

The East Midlands Leadership Academy are pleased to confirm that their new ‘BAME Co-Mentoring Programme’ is launching in March 2019 and they are now looking for BAME participants for the programme.

The programme will seek to pair a BAME member of staff who is a champion for the inclusion agenda with a senior NHS leader in a co-mentoring relationship.

The overall aim is for those paired together to establish a mutually beneficial learning relationship.

The BAME staff member will experience support from the senior leader and be given an opportunity to share their own experiences. They will also gain skills, knowledge and experience from the senior leader.

The senior leader will gain an understanding of the real issues BAME staff are facing, leading to them questioning how inclusive their own actions are and whether their organisation truly has an inclusive culture.

The programme will run for 12 months and consist of a number of programme days along with the mentoring pairs being expected to arrange meetings between themselves on a regular basis throughout this time period.

Programme days will include:

  • Programme Launch Day – March 22nd 2019 in Nottingham
  • Action Learning / Check in Day 1 – Date TBC
  • Action Learning / Check in Day 2 – Date TBC
  • Action Learning / Check in Day 3 – Date TBC
  • Join Feedback Day – Date TBC
  • Individual Interviews – Date TBC

In order to evidence impact and learning participants of the programme will be required to create a presentation in their mentoring pairs in which they will highlight the impact the programme has had for both parties at an organisational level. Individual feedback interviews will also capture learning at a personal level.

They are now at the stage where we are looking to recruit 12 BAME staff members to take part in the programme.

They are looking for individuals that are passionate about driving the inclusion agenda forward, have the confidence to challenge a senior leader on this topic and would be willing to commit to the programme.

Those that are successful in gaining a place on the programme will require a sponsor from their organisation. This sponsor will be required to provide additional meaningful support to the BAME staff member throughout the programme. This support can be mutually agreed by both parties but we would expect it to cover emotional support and support to implement learning.

To apply for the programme staff need to complete the application form and return it to eastmidlands.leadershipacademy@nottshc.nhs.uk by 5pm on Monday 28th January.
