Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Visible Leaders Network Listening Event


The Visible Leaders Network (VLN) was originally set up by the East Midlands Leadership Academy as a place for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff within the NHS from Bands 4–8a to come together for peer support and to access leadership development opportunities to explore and enhance the skills needed for career progression.

Following on from previous VLN success, we’re looking to expand the network across the Midlands region during 2021-22 and beyond. To inform this important work, we would really welcome the views of VLN members from across the East and West Midlands in identifying priorities for the coming year in helping to shape future VLN support and development provision to ensure it is responsive to member needs.

This is an invitation only event for BAME VLN members. It is an opportunity to share what has worked well in the past, and in an ever-changing environment, what will work for you now and in the future in getting the very best out of your network membership.

This event is being facilitated by NHS Elect (www.nhselect.nhs.uk) who will help us in our discussions during the event and also help capture your reflections.

Who should attend?
BAME Visible Leaders Network members only (Bands 4-8a)
