Paula Giddings’ book Where and When I Enter demonstrates that our experiences shape our activism and leadership. Influential in the civil rights movement, her book is hailed as a forerunner to notions of intersectionality where ‘ways of being’ are a strength offering connectedness and influence.
The latest BME Leadership Network event, part of Black History Season, will explore this in the NHS context. On 25 November, Prof Dame Elizabeth Anionwu will lead a conversation between five leaders from black and minority ethnic communities tackling leadership throughout and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
The discussion will cover a number of key talking points, including:
- innovative solutions to yesterday’s problems through diverse leadership styles
- remaining authentic as a leader
- intense scrutiny and the impact of error
- values-based leadership and the importance of connection.
