Future Leaders of Nottingham is looking for the next generation of leadership talent to guide the city and its organisations in 2021 and beyond, and make leadership in the city more diverse, inclusive and representative of Nottingham’s communities.
The unique professional development programme for talented and diverse people who want to make a difference is run by a partnership of city organisations including The Renewal Trust, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, Nottingham City Council, Nottingham City Homes, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and Futures and Communities Inc.
Now in its fifth year, the programme is looking for people with leadership potential to join its 2021 cohort, together with organisations who are keen to support their employees and improve diversity and inclusion – both in their own organisation and across Nottingham.
The 2021 programme will run from January to July 2021 and include a unique mix of innovative masterclasses, action learning, coaching, mentoring and events. The programme has been designed to run in-person or online, depending on Covid-19 restrictions in place at the time.
The masterclasses will be run by internationally-renowned experts focusing on ‘What is Leadership?’, ‘Leadership in Uncertain Times’, ‘Emotional Intelligence and Self-Care’, ‘Authenticity and Failure’ and ‘Understanding Nottingham’.
The programme is open to anyone working in Nottinghamshire who has leadership potential, regardless of what stage their career is at or their age.
To improve diversity in leadership, Future Leaders is specifically interested in applications from people from Black, Asian and other ethnic minority backgrounds, people living with a disability, or people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or other identities. All Future Leaders are selected on merit, following an assessment workshop to identify applicants with great leadership potential.
