We invite applications from people working in any business in any sector - private, public and voluntary – bringing different organisations together to share experiences and best practice.

Background
On 27 October 2014, 70 representatives from private, public and voluntary sector organisations came together to launch Future Leaders of Nottingham – to improve diversity and representation in leadership across the city.


The programme was developed in response to the Citywide Positive Action Study 2014, which identified key gaps in diversity at board and senior management level.


"I’m impressed with the impact the programme is making on individuals and our city. I’m committed to equality of opportunity and this is what Future Leaders is all about. It equips those who have leadership potential with all the tools and contacts they need to succeed." -

Michael Henry
Director - Communities Inc


Research by McKinsey shows that organisations with a gender-diverse board are 15% more likely to out-perform their peers financially, and those with an ethnically-diverse board 35% more likely.

Future Leaders of Nottingham is run by a group of leading employers committed to improving inequality and under-representation at senior levels – coordinated by The Renewal Trust.

Applications close 31st May.
