The Business of Healthcare Scholarship programme

BY CLAUDY RODHOUSE  |  POSTED IN GENERAL NEWS

Supporting BAME healthcare professionals pursue their leadership careers

By Tara Humphrey 

ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIPS

"As a black female and small business owner operating in the field of healthcare, I want to support
professionals passionate about making their mark in this amazing yet challenging sector, just like
I am striving to do.
.
There is a wealth of research citing the lack of ethnic minority representation in senior leadership
positions because Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) professionals still face a number of
challenges and barriers in and outside of the workplace.?
.
While there is a tremendous amount of work to do, I believe no matter how small our individual
actions may be, we can use our voices, platforms, networks and resources to support, empower
and promote others to pursue the careers they are passionate about and increase the number of
BAME healthcare professionals in leadership positions.
.
I believe that to be the best leaders we can be, we need to invest in our personal and professional
development, which is why this scholarship will provide financial support towards a training course,
and non-financial support through leadership coaching, for those passionate about pursuing a
leadership career in healthcare."
