University of Bath


An innovative leadership and development programme For Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Women from January – July 2021.

The Elevate programme

Elevate is a brand new development programme being run as a pilot in 2021 by the four GW Universities (Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter). It is aimed at BAME female staff across all staff groups, with the intention of enabling better career opportunities for a population that is often under-represented. All four Universities will run the same application process to find candidates.

In Bath the eligible group is in grades 6-8 in the Education and Research job family, and grades 4-8 in all other job families.

Elevate will:

  • Provide a 10-day blended learning leadership and professional development programme for Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic female staff over 7 months

  • Introduce participants to different leadership styles and approaches which support the development of leadership and influencing skills

  • Support participants to identify strengths and talents as well as development needs

  • Provide on-going support through action learning and cross-institutional mentoring

  • Empower women by using creative methodologies such as story-telling and journaling for reflection and sharing
