A key priority for Advance HE is to take a series of actions working with the sector to tackle the well documented under representation of BAME leaders in UK higher education institutions; The Diversifying Leadership Programme is an important element of that work and since the programme launched in 2015 with investment from the UK HE funding bodies, we have seen the programme grow from strength to strength. If you are ready to start the application process for Diversifying Leadership, you can download the personal statement form here and the sponsor statement form here.
