Training programme launched for gay leaders


A specialist training programme for senior lesbian, gay and bisexual leaders has been launched.

Caret, in partnership with Fairy Dust Consulting, announces the launch of Rainbow High - a comprehensive programme to develop the skills, style and influence of gay, lesbian and bisexual leaders and managers.

Rainbow High is a modular residential programme that provides participants with high impact leadership development in an environment of encouragement and support.

The programme is structured around three two-day modules that blend one-to-one and group development with expert input and peer support. It is open to leaders and managers who hold strategic level positions within their organisation.

Steve Bedser, managing director of Fairy Dust Consulting and elected councillor for Kings Norton, Birmingham, is a long-time ambassador for the lesbian and gay community. Steve describes the programme as helping participants to, "develop their leadership skills, style and impact and improve their contribution through the confident reflection of their own identity and life experiences."
