Developing Diverse Leaders in Yorkshire and Humber  2013-14

The Yorkshire & Humber Diversity Steering Group has successfully received funding for four succession planning programmes to support diversity of school leaders.

The Diversity Steering Group is a regional collaborative partnership of local authority representatives, headteachers, senior leaders, Teaching School and Carngie Leaders. One of the goals of the group is to increase aspiration and empower the workforce from ethnic minority backgrounds to take up leadership roles across the region to address the under representation of ethnic minority school leaders who continue to face barriers and challenges.
