LGBT Leadership Programme

Developing the LGBT leaders of tomorrow

Get in Touch

Birmingham LGBT has created a unique LGBT Leadership Programme, developed to create and sustain LGBT leaders skilled in facilitating the growth of resilient, diverse organisations and communities and to enable them to become more engaged in all areas of public life.

Nationally endorsed through the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM), a key aim of the LGBT Leadership Programme is to enable LGBT people to become empowered to be decision makers, in supporting their organisations and workforces to achieve greater equality, inclusiveness and diversity.

The LGBT Leadership Programme provides structured learning in five clear stages designed to support individuals to focus on their own personal and professional development.

The programme is gaining momentum and profile nationally and is currently being delivered to a full cohort of trainees. To apply to join our next programme or to be added to our growing waiting list, please follow the links below.

The tools and techniques explored in the course resonated with me and have helped me to make valuable changes to the way I work.
