Our Approach

Our aspiration is to achieve a rich, diverse and representative cultural sector.  Equality, diversity and inclusion are central to our ambition to be open and inclusive, creating accessible learning environments that support all our leaders to excel.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We are observant of the Equality Act 2010, protected characteristics and unlawful discrimination. We are conversant and clear around definitions of disability and long tem health conditions and the barriers that people face in accessing opportunity.

We support Arts Council England's Creative Case for Diversity and monitor the diversity of applicants to our programmes to assess our impact and reach and inform where we could do better. 

Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people, as well as disabled people are currently heavily underrepresented in leadership roles in the cultural sector in the UK. We welcome and encourage BAME candidates to apply for all our programmes.

A Scoping Survey we commissioned indicated cost as a key barrier to disabled people accessing leadership training, therefore we set up a variety of schemes to encourage disabled people to put themselves forward for our programmes:

  • Disabled Leaders Bursary allows us to waive the course fee for Disabled leaders from England who secure a place on our Courses. Successful participants will only be required to cover their travel to and from the course. 
  • We have a Guaranteed Interview Scheme in place for our Fellowship Programme. 
  • We will interview all disabled applicants for staff roles at Clore Leadership who meet the minimum criteria.
Access Requirements and Inclusive Learning

We strive to meet the access requirements of those selected on our programmes wherever and in whatever way we can. We provide support workers, British Sign Language interpreters, notetakers and course materials in alternative formats on request.

We strive for our spaces to be inclusive and we flex our provision and train our programme facilitators and providers to respond to people's needs, so that everyone feels respected and comfortable. 

Clore Leadership has worked with many Disabled Leaders and Fellows with wide-ranging access requirements. If you would like to talk to someone about their Clore Leadership experience, please get in touch and we will try and connect you. 

If you have access needs requirements related to the application process, wish to apply in a different format, need additional support to make an application or access our programmes, please contact us by telephone on +44 (020) 7420 9430 or by emailing info@cloreleadership.org

Our regular office hours are 10.00 am to 5.30 pm Monday to Friday.
