‘An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualist concerns, to the broader concerns of all humanity’  

Martin Luther King, Jr  

The purpose of this Leading to Change programme is to provide a safe space for you to connect with other people in the system and to explore an equality, diversity and inclusion theme together through informal conversations. Prior to each session, we would encourage you to look at the equality blogs to help kick start the conversation.

The theme for this session is empowerment in relation to our individual leadership development journey.

Participants will be paired up in small groups and invited to have a conversation. Some questions to explore could be:

  • What are the key lessons that I can take from this journey 
  • What can I do differently that will have an impact on myself as a leader? 
  • How can I overcome barriers or help others to do so? 

During the session we will put a feedback form in the chat for you to complete during the session. We want to understand what came up in the conversation and any insights that you have.

Prior to this session, to help inform our conversations, we would encourage you to have a look at our featured Equality blog:

Empowerment and My Leadership Journey – Leading to Change.

He is also the Chair of the NSS ethnic, cultural diversity and friends’ network and co-convenor of the Global Citizenship Programme.
