If you are a Black or Racialised staff member working in the Violence Against Women Sector (VAWG) this 12-Week Leadership Programme is for YOU!

H.O.P.E Training and Consultancy is working to address systemic barriers to colleagues from racialised communities entering the sector, and remaining as part of the workforce and progressing to leadership opportunities.

The Key Aims of this programme are:  

  •  Tackling Institutional Racism.
  •  Focusing on Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion.
  •  Addressing Feelings of Isolation.

Recognising a lack of diversity in the workforce and inadequate opportunities for professionals from racialised communities is a prominent issue across the not-for-profit sector.

In 2021 the Drive Partnership commissioned H.O.P.E Training and Consultancy in 2022 to research the views and experiences of nearly 50 frontline staff from racialised communities and over 40 sector leaders working within specialist domestic abuse perpetrator services and organisations.

In 2022 H.O.P.E delivered their first ever Leadership programme (picture of graduates below). Results from this can be found on our supported Research Page.

The second round of the H.O.P.E Leadership Programme will run from Friday 17th November 2023 – Friday 16th February 2024. (Applications for this is now closed)

During the 12-Week programme, candidates will receive:

  •   Separate coaching sessions (via Zoom) with an independent workplace coach (provided by H.O.P.E).
  •  Access to leadership resources and action learning sets.
  •   Access to leading guest speakers.
  •   Networking Opportunities amongst other leaders.
