About the course:

The lack of leaders from diverse backgrounds, and particularly minority ethnic backgrounds, has been identified in much recent research such as the Parker Review 2020.

NTU’s Diverse Leadership programme has been developed following discussions with local cultural leaders focusing on the need for change management skills and the development of existing leaders to support the diversification of the workforce. The programme will also focus on developing skills of current or aspiring Black and ethnic-minority leaders.

Led by Nottingham Business school, the programme will cover a 20-credit module at Level 7 equivalent.

B-Global is recruiting 80 businesses across the D2N2 on to this Diverse Leadership course to be delivered by Nottingham Business School at NTU. The course will lead participants to the attainment of a 20-credit module at Level 7.
