This report, commissioned by the NHS Leadership Academy, sets out the evidence base for Building Leadership For Inclusion (BLFI) – an ambitious new programme of work that aims to (1) raise the level of ambition, (2) quicken the pace of change,
and (3) ensure that NHS leadership is equipped to achieve and leave an ever-increasing and sustainable legacy in relation to equality, diversity and inclusion. The report has been written by a research team based at the University of the West of England and is informed by an extensive review of relevant literature, interviews with academic experts and preliminary action research with the BLFI team and partners.
