New podcast exploring the Supporting Inclusive Boards programme

14 Dec 2023 | Advance HE Kim Ansell and Tessé Akpeki who run the Supporting Inclusive Boards programme discuss what's next.

A new podcast exploring the highlights and challenges of the Supporting Inclusive Boards programme has launched as part of Advance HE’s Member Benefits.

The Supporting Inclusive Boards programme engages governance professionals in enhancing and sharing thinking.

In the podcast, Kim Ansell, Senior Consultant for Governance and Leadership at Advance HE and Tessé Akpeki, Senior Associate Consultant at the Wellbeing and Resilience Leadership Initiative, share the highlights, challenges and learning from two Supporting Inclusive Board programmes which have been part of Advance HE’s member benefit offers over the past two years.

Kim said: “Our work with governors and professionals has been engaging and rewarding. We’ve had some great feedback about those two programmes which have equipped participants with practical skills to make a difference in the short, medium and long term.

“We’ve also heard how it’s built confidence to try new things, to think differently and to recognise the importance of the role of governance professionals in implementing change to improve board diversity.”

Interactive workshop

Kim and Tessé also look ahead to what comes next - an interactive workshop taking place in January 2024 designed to engage the audience in discussion groups to share learning and good practice in board diversity.
