This event is open to nurses in the Midlands of BME heritage who work in the NHS at Band 7 or above or an equivalent role in other healthcare settings. The event is the launch a proof of concept project to identify sponsors who can work with people from BME background so that the sponsor can use their position of power and influence to help advance the career of people who take part in the programme.


The project had been initiated by the Perceptions of Nursing programme of work and we are working in collaboration with Common Purpose, RCN, NHS England/Improvement Midlands region, Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust and the CNO BME SAG Midlands Region.


The interactive launch day will be delivered by Common Purpose and is designed to:

  • encourage participants to think of themselves as leaders, whatever their level – especially through the lens of Leading Beyond Authority (LBA)
  • expose participants to external contributors to hear their personal reflections on leadership and LBA – both positive aspects and navigating challenges
  • help delegates reflect on their own personal leadership – in relation to ‘sources of power’ and the power of networks


  • create an opportunity for participants to build trust, support each other and also consider practical next steps, relating to the role of sponsors, through peer coaching sessions with external senior leaders/sponsors


There are 50 places available and they will be offered on a first come first served basis.
