About the conference
BAME into Leadership
Now in its tenth year, the annual BAME (black, asian, minority ethnic) into Leadership conference has established itself as the key event for those interested in enhancing the capabilities & leadership opportunities for BAME colleagues across the Civil Service and wider public sector. The conference & speakers will examine how BAME individuals, at any level, can continue to overcome barriers, build networks and become the leaders they aspire to be.
Drawing on the strengths of the 2019 event, this year's conference will centre on driving professional development & change. It will offer hands-on advice, practical steps and coaching on how to adapt to new environments, expand networks, utilise opportunities effectively and further your career in times of change.
Attendees will hear from inspirational speakers of all grades & levels from across the public and private sectors. Plus learn valuable strategies on how to manage the challenges of modern leadership and help ensure the Civil Service and public sector doesn't lose momentum in recruiting, retaining and rewarding BAME leaders.
