Black Women in Leadership Programme

As part of the Being Human Series, the Hanover Centre is proud to present its newest programme of interactive and psychologically informed leadership study for Black women.

The aims of this bespoke programme are:

  1. To develop the mindset, tools, agility, confidence for Black women leaders to lead with impact.
  2. To help make the concept of leadership for Black women human…
  3. To identify, explore and understand the personal, social, racial, organisational and psychological barriers for Black women leaders,
  4. To help Black women leaders identify and bridge the gap between where they are and where they need to be, to progress into more senior roles.
  5. To empower and support Black women leaders development by increasing their self- awareness, confidence, feelings of empowerment and self-efficacy.
  6. To develop Black women leaders emotional, cognitive and organisation wellbeing and self- care to improve their resilience and capacity to adapt and lead in a VUCA world.

Black Women in Leadership:

This programme was developed by senior Black female leaders from EDI, HR and Psychology for Black female leaders. It combines 48 years of knowledge, experience and understandings to the task of Black women leadership development. The insights and learnings from these three distinct, but related fields create a bespoke and comprehensive programme of learning for Black women leaders.

This interactive programme includes learning about the task of leadership, leading from a Black female perspective within White workplaces and workspace and leading within the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world of the Coronavirus pandemic, remote working and the constant fear/threat of business annihilation.

This psychological and reflective element of the ‘Group Active Learning (GAL) Spaces” also helps mitigate against the failing to which other leadership programmes fall victim. That is the difficulty for training attendees to sustain and implement their learning over time. Many people leave training programmes excited and motivated to change, however, when back in their workplace or workspace, they revert to old and familiar ways of being. The ‘GAL Spaces’ offer attendees a dedicated brave space to emotionally and cognitively explore and examine their learning and integrate it into leadership practices.

The certificate in Black Women in Leadership is a rich programme for Black women leaders. It addresses the limitations of conventional and generic advice to women and empowers Black women leaders to embrace their uniqueness and be the best leader that they can be.
