Overview

As institutions struggle to demonstrate their commitment to realising their moral, legal, strategic and equality objectives, the importance of effective leadership, particularly to increase diversity and promote greater inclusion for all has gained greater significance.

Embedding inclusive practices as the golden thread that runs throughout organisations is a minimum requirement, but remains a priority issue. Effective leadership is critical to the success of any organisation, however, there is no consensus about how inclusive leadership is conceptualised and operationalized.

This interactive, path breaking course aims employs the lens of social justice in order to equip current and prospective leaders with the knowledge and skills to transform their leadership practices by introducing them to contemporary scholarship and discourses relating to inclusive leadership.

Participants will engage with key questions and contestations in exploring the meaning of inclusive leadership and how it is understood personally as within their organisation. The course will also enable participants to transform their own practice by understanding:

  • their individual role as a change agent in relation to their team and/or service, their organisation, and the broader society;
  • the need to adopt a systemic approach to creating equality and inclusion for all
  • the changing nature of the drivers for inclusion and therefore of inclusive leadership.

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at HEI leaders, senior leaders and policy-makers who can engender departmental and institutional change. It will also be of interest to leaders with an EDI remit and those wishing to learn how to embed inclusive practices within their institutions.
