1 day leadership symposium organised by the Centre for Citizenship and Community

 

Overview:

Social Work Leaders at all levels are working within increasing complexity arising from demographic and resource pressures, growing social inequality and the changing nature of diversity in our workforce and communities. This symposium will present the reflections of leaders and academics in the area of social work and social care and will consider some of the current challenges to leading effective interventions and services. The day is an opportunity to work with colleagues across the sector and reflect on the leadership training needs of the workforce. The symposium will end with a round table workshop to reflect how to support inclusive and innovative leadership.

 

This symposium aims to:

  • Present the reflections of key leaders in the area of social work and social care and consider some of the current challenges to leading effective interventions and services;
  • Co-design a commissioning strategy for leadership development across the North West region;
  • Share a key programme initiative in inclusive leadership undertaken by the Centre for Citizenship and Community and consider the relevance to local and regional challenges.
