At this transformational time, Clore Leadership is pleased to be working with Clore Fellow Gaylene Gould to curate Brilliant Routes, a strand of programming focused on progression routes for BAME/POC leaders. This forms a key part of our Inclusive Leadership delivery for Arts Council England’s Transforming Leadership programme, which prioritises activities to address existing gaps in diversity in the leadership of culture.
Brilliant Routes will pilot and test different ways to combat the issue of BAME/POC progression using workshops, learning zones, talks and a variety of formats to address issues of influence, allyship, thought-leadership, self-compassion and advancement.
Whilst, in order to create safe spaces for honest reflection, some activities will be closed to BAME/POC leaders only, we are actively seeking partners from the wider cultural sector to champion and facilitate opportunities for structural and lasting change.
