Leadership Insights         Black and Minority Ethnic Leaders



Aurora is LFHE's leadership development initiative that combines education, mentoring and on-line resources to provide learning with a more enduring impact. Aurora provides an additional opportunity for women to influence their institutions and to develop leadership skills and does not replace other LF programmes, where LFHE expect to go on drawing equally from men and women as before.

For staff who are interested in this programme, please see the below documents:
