Strategic executive development for diverse leaders in higher education
StellarHE enhances and extends the leadership skills of BAME Academic and Professional staff in order to address the under-representation of BAME leaders in senior positions.
It has been designed specifically to equip participants with leadership competencies and strategies that reflect the unique challenges and experiences of BAME staff across the HE sector.
"Our experience of StellarHE is of participants claiming the programme to be a ‘transformational experience’ and ‘like nothing we’ve been on before.’
StellarHE has become an integral part of the university’s overall BME strategy and has played a pivotal role in engaging and increasing the confidence of our BME staff.
We’re delighted with the outcome and proud to have been able to offer the programme to employees within the institution."
- Patrick Johnson, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at The University of Manchester
Aligns with University strategic aims
"StellarHE fits very well into our strategic aim of being a modern civic University where promotion of equality and diversity is a core value, and ensuring that our BAME staff are given the opportunity to develop the required skills to occupy senior level roles is an imperative.
My hope is that all participants on this programme are able to harness the knowledge gained on the course to make progress in their careers.”
- Professor Nigel Weatherill, Former Vice-Chancellor
Liverpool John Moores University
More than a leadership development programme
"The StellarHE programme enabled me to identify, develop and build on a unique set of skills which I put into practice over the course of the programme.
The Factor8 Different Leaders assessment and other diagnostics were key to identifying my core values and strengths in the context of work and how this is demonstrated in my leadership style.
I truly believe this programme helped a great deal in positioning me for promotion to Head of HR and recommend this programme for BAME staff wishing to develop their career."
- Evelyn Eguridu, Head of HR, SLASH and VP Education & Student Affairs, University College London
