About the event

Event background:

Based on the Home Office findings, 93.4% of police officers were white, and only 6.6% from BAME groups. Whilst the number of BAME officers has almost doubled over the past decade, the number making senior ranks remains stubbornly low (at just 3.7%). Much more needs to be done to correct this overwhelming imbalance. 

The BAME in Policing conference explores the role of BAME individuals in policing and offers practical advice and coaching on how to develop your career and leadership capabilities in times of change. We will discuss together how we can manage the challenges of modern leadership and help ensure we don't lose momentum in recruiting, recognising and rewarding BAME leaders in policing.

Why attend:

  • Explore ways to raise the visibility of BAME individuals in policing
  • Examine the barriers currently facing BAME individuals in policing and hear how to overcome them
  • Identify the unique leadership challenges and opportunities facing BAME people in policing today
  • Understand when and how ethnicity plays a role in both organisational and personal advancement
  • Learn how successful individuals negotiate for what they need to be effective leaders
