Creative Access & Promax UK announce their BAME-Focused Leadership Programme
We are pleased to announce that we are working with Promax to deliver PROGRESS, a six-month programme, which will cover leadership, mentoring and networking skills for under-represented talent across the creative industries.
In a drive to ensure Britain’s society is truly represented in our media and creative industries, Promax UK and Creative Access have partnered to launch PROGRESS – a leadership programme with a strong focus on BAME candidates and those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.
The first programme of its kind in the British broadcast industry, PROGRESS aims to ensure greater diversity at senior levels by encouraging the professional development of people from under-represented backgrounds.
The six-month programme kicks off this month and will cover three core elements:
- Leadership Training – practical, interactive workshops delivered by award-winning journalist Lynn Blades, designed to help build confidence and skills to become an effective leader
- Mentoring – each individual will be matched with a high-achieving professional in their chosen field to help create a strong network to nurture their career development
- Networking – attending conferences, training courses and monthly masterclasses at the UK’s leading creative organisations such as Facebook, ITV, LinkedIn, The Times, The National Theatre and more, building lasting networks
PROGRESS is open to staff who work for companies who are broadcast sponsors of Promax UK. For more information on the course, to find out how to apply or to nominate an individual, visit promaxuk.com/progress.
