We are proud to share that the Business of Healthcare Scholarship programme created to support healthcare professionals from ethnically diverse backgrounds pursue their leadership careers has been shortlisted for a Workforce Innovator Award 2021.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED
ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIPS
"As a black female and small business owner operating in the field of healthcare, I want to support professionals passionate about making their mark in this amazing yet challenging sector, just like I am striving to do.
There is a wealth of research citing the lack of ethnic minority representation in senior leadership positions because Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) professionals still face a number of challenges and barriers in and outside of the workplace.
While there is a tremendous amount of work to do, I believe no matter how small our individual actions may be, we can use our voices, platforms, networks and resources to support, empower and promote others to pursue the careers they are passionate about and increase the number of BAME healthcare professionals in leadership positions.
I believe that to be the best leaders we can be, we need to invest in our personal and professional development, which is why this scholarship will provide financial support towards a training course, and non-financial support through leadership coaching, for those passionate about pursuing a leadership career in healthcare."
This is the first year I am offering the scholarship and am proud to be funding this myself.
