Activate: an anti-racism leadership course

Updated: Apr 3

Activate is a ground-breaking leadership development programme and collaboration between brap and The King’s Fund open to anyone working in a management or leadership role in health and care.

Through a combination of workshops and learning sets facilitated by a mixed faculty of brap and The King’s Fund facilitators, you will explore how you can see differently, respond differently and lead differently when it comes to anti-racism.

What will I learn on the Activate programme? 

During the Activate programme you'll work with facilitators from The King’s Fund and brap to:

  • understand race, racism and racialised thinking

  • raise awareness of the role of whiteness in upholding racial hierarchies

  • navigate the tensions inherent in racial justice work

  • recognise how the status quo reproduces itself

  • understand the impacts of racism in health and care

Our anti-racism leadership development programme is supported by a handbook that presents the key, foundational ideas and concepts at the heart of the programme with journalling prompts and recommendations for further reading and watching.
