Clore Leadership Programme announces diversity aims for 2021

The Clore Leadership Programme has laid out its plans for 2021, including a greater focus on helping BAME leaders.

Clore fellow Gaylene Gould will lead the effort with Brilliant Routes. The programme will use workshops, talks and other formats, “to address issues of influence, kinship building, thought-leadership, self-compassion and career expansion.”

Continued the statement from Clore: “These strategic diversity programmes…[will] give space to marginalised leaders and tackle inclusivity in the culture sector workforce.”

Further, the Clore Fellowship Programme will be fee-free in 2021, while bursaries will support 75% of its intensive courses. In addition, there will be a number of pay-what-you-decide places for other Clore Leadership activities.

Commented board member Wayne McGregor: “Our sector is set for a seismic change, only if we capture this extreme moment of disruption and explore its multi-faceted potential. We need evolution, adaption and fresh thinking to challenge the inequalities and vulnerabilities exposed by this strange period of enforced pause and we need urgent action.”

The application process for Clore’s 2021 programmes will open at the end of September and close on 26 October.

Clore has two other events to mark in the calendar: the Emerging Futures 2020 conference (29-30 September) and Governance Now 2020 (November 2020).
