This publication aims to encourage managers and clinical professionals to reflect on and share learning and experience of what enables nurses from black and ethnic minority communities to succeed in reaching positions of leadership in the health service. Based on a survey of nurse leaders from these communities across the country, it explores what has been learnt so far by those who have reached positions of seniority in their health service careers, often ‘against the odds’. In particular, it considers: - How big is the problem of developing and retaining sufficient numbers of senior managers and leaders among black and ethnic minority nurses? - What are the key issues and challenges from the perspectives of nurses in leadership positions who are themselves from black and ethnic minorities? - What lessons have been learnt that can help inspire, foster and develop a more representative and inclusive workforce – and crucially, at leadership and senior management levels in nursing?
