In June 2018, the University led on the research for the West Midlands Combined Authority’s report, Leaders Like You. The report concluded not only that diversity and inclusion in leadership matter, but also that we need to transform the way that we think about leaders and leadership.

What are the possibilities of using the arts to transform the way that we think about leadership? The arts have an unrivalled ability to create change and transformation, challenging convention and inspiring us to see the familiar in new ways.

This event, hosted by Professor Kiran Trehan, will explore the options for working with artists to create open learning spaces and visual representation of our current situation and where we need to be. This interactive workshop, will help us to explore how we can use creative approaches to make leadership diversity everyone’s business.

So join us for our creative brunch event where you will have the opportunity to explore leaders, leadership and identity through stories, pictures, and a live performance from Birmingham-based Dragpunk.
